A Four-Year Plan for DePauw University Students


At the Kathryn F. Hubbard Center for Student Engagement, we sit at the crossroads of the student experience at DePauw. It is our mission to help you discover more about yourself and the world around you. We can help you prepare for life after DePauw and make connections—whether that be to other students on campus, alumni, leaders in the Greencastle community, or to people living around the world.

By working with our office, we can help you make a road map for your time at DePauw, to make sure you take advantage of all the great programs this University has to offer.

Prepare

Once you have taken the time to learn about the great opportunities the University has to offer, you will begin the important work of preparing for life after DePauw. The liberal arts has a proud tradition of producing the nation’s best scholars and leaders. At DePauw, we are committed to producing graduates who are ready to engage whatever comes next. This may require you to:

  • Become INdorsed by the Career Development Professionals of Indiana as a career-ready graduate and work on job-search skills such as resume/cover letter writing and interview preparation. Learn more...

  • Participate in the Hartman Engaged Leader Program through the Hubbard Center. Learn more...


Connect

Finally, we hope that students build connections during their time at DePauw. We strive to educate every aspect of our students and help them articulate their development. It is our hope that your experiences while at DePauw will build upon each other to best prepare you for whatever comes next. This may require you to:

  • Finalize academic plans with your adviser and be ready to apply for job or graduate school. Learn more...

  • Complete your senior seminar or capstone project and/or major-specific comprehensive examinations.

  • Build up a professional network with alumni and consider joining a professional association or attending a professional conference. Learn more...

  • Reflect on your experiences and work on articulating them by participating in a mock interview, or get resume and cover letter help from an adviser in the Career Services office. Learn more...

  • Go back and revisit your goals and continue to seek out new opportunities to augment your knowledge and skills.
