Alumni Giving Back

Posted on: April 27, 2012

Man and woman, shaking hands.Over the past school year, we have seen a show of impressive enthusiasm from CAS alumni as they have reached out to our students on a multitude of levels.  This show of commitment has allowed us to continue to be the premier college of choice, providing our students with a greater sense of industry knowledge, experience and exposure-- enhancing their college careers, as well as better preparing them for their future professions.

These alumni have been involved in mentoring our students through the Ten4Ten program, providing internships with Fortune 500 companies and participating in the guest lecture programs for journalism, TISM, advertising and health and risk communications. They also provide our students with industry awareness and involvement through various programs and research activities; introduce our students to key industry leaders; participate in speed networking sessions; host industry showcases for students in Detroit, Grand Rapids and Lansing; and host regional events that connect Spartans with one another.

In addition, alums have stepped up to the plate to provide critical financial support for student scholarships, internships and study abroad programs. This support allows us to strengthen the depth of the students' experience and provide them with an opportunity they could not necessarily afford otherwise. It gives the students a chance to push harder and further, to challenge themselves and reach beyond their goals.

Our alums' commitment to CAS has assisted the college in preparing tomorrow's global communication leaders, allowing them to be industry-ready and positioning them to be at the forefront of becoming change leaders. 

Thank you to the CAS alumni who have given so much of themselves. Our students, faculty and staff greatly appreciate your enthusiasm and commitment as it is a vital contributor to our college’s continued success.

Connecting Spartans with Spartans has a significant impact on our students' success both during and after their time at MSU. These connections are priceless and beneficial to all.

If you would like to join our alumni outreach, we would love to have you. Contact me at pwhitten@msu.edu.

Thank you. Go Green.
