Resources for Alumni

Getting Assistance

Are you a recent alum or are you thinking about making a career change? Looking for resources? The Center for Careers, Life, and Service can work with you to determine next steps. Below are some of the services we offer alumni. 

  • Career Advising: CLS advisers can help you brainstorm options, explore transferable skills, plan networking strategies, connect with other alumni, and review professional materials.
  • Graduate and Professional School Advising: Applying for postgraduate education doesn’t have to be daunting. We can walk you through preparation, application processes, and selection.
  • Postgraduate Fellowships and Awards: Many awards, including Fulbright Grants and prestigious UK scholarships (Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, Churchill), accept applications from recent graduates. As alumni, you may work with the CLS on your applications — even those requiring campus nomination or endorsement.
