The Hubbard Center for Student Engagement also supports alumni, from facilitating networking to reconnecting with classmates and helping with career-related searches and support.
The Hubbard Center for Student Engagement, like DePauw, continues to support you and many other alumni after you receive your degree at commencement. The Center also connects alumni with the current generation of DePauw students, who can gain from internships and additional insights that you can provide while also contributing to your business.
Learn more about how you, as a member of the DePauw community, can reconnect with your classmates and the University through social media, network with other DePauw alumni, mentor current students, and receive support from the Hubbard Center.

As a DePauw grad, you can be an invaluable resource to help current students who are planning their time at DePauw. You can support current students by:
The mentoring program is self-guided and between you and the student. As a mentor, you will go in and set up a profile. After completing a required etiquette program, students will then search for mentors in fields of interest and apply directly to you for consideration.
As with the mentoring program, the job shadowing program is self-guided and between you and the student. Students are required to complete a networking etiquette program to be eligible for job shadowing. You set up your profile and students search the system for alumni to shadow.
