The School of Journalism and Mass Communication’s alumni represent a wide range of media and strategic communication interests. These outstanding individuals have forged trailblazing paths to success in the professional world, and they bring their rich knowledge and experience back to the school through visits, lectures, and other donations of time and resources.
Our doors are always open to alumni and we encourage them all to maintain connections to one another, to up-and-coming graduates and to the faculty and staff who nurtured their education.
Friends of the School
We are also proud to call many generous individuals friends and supporters of the school. They help further the education of young communicators and support the faculty and graduate-level research that sets our institution apart from other schools of journalism and mass communication. The importance of our friends’ contributions to the intellectual and professional life of the school cannot be overlooked.
We welcome alumni who are willing to serve as contacts and career-related mentors for current undergraduate and graduate students who seek internships or career guidance. Friends of the school also may wish to share their expertise by talking to student groups, giving a class lecture, or sharing their ideas with the school’s faculty, staff and students.

Tax-deductible gifts and donations play a vital role in supporting student scholarships, classroom renovations, professional development opportunities and career services. The generous contributions of our loyal alumni and friends play a significant role in helping our students succeed both during their time in the school and after graduation. Thank you!
