Our alumni continue to be involved in the life of the college. And it’s easy to understand why: everyone benefits.
Here are some of the ways you can get involved in supporting current students:
- Mentor an undergraduate or graduate student through the Executive Mentors Scholars program
- Participate in the Horn Program in Entrepreneurship’s “E-Studies Free Lunch Fridays” to share your experience and advice to students interested in starting their own businesses
- Guest-judge alumni, student and faculty business pitches during the annual President’s Forum on Innovation & Entrepreneurship
- Collaborate with the Lerner Career Services Center to identify an internship or other educational opportunity for a student
- Guest lecture in a college classroom or speak to one of our many student organizations
- Serve as a judge for the annual Carol A. Ammon MBA Case Competition
