Connect with Fellow Alumni

LinkedIn- Reach out to alumni for support and advice using the LinkedIn official DePauw University Alumni Group. Each contact can lead to information, opportunities, and additional contacts. The key to networking is connecting with people so you reach the largest possible group in any field.

Alumni Gateway- Our  online alumni community helps you find and connect with classmates, maintain your contact information, share your post-graduate experience, network with current students, and register for regional and on-campus events. The Office of Alumni Relations is responsible for updating and managing the Alumni Directory.

WISR: Alumni Networking & Mentoring - Connects current DePauw students with alumni who volunteer to share their professional experiences, offer advice on graduate school or new geographic locations, review resumes, host mock interviews, provide career counseling, recruit interns and full-time employees, or offer job shadowing experiences. Visit the WISR website.

Mentor Current Students

As a DePauw graduate, you can be an invaluable resource to help current students as they plan their DePauw and post-graduation experience.

Job Shadowing- Contact us if you would like to invite current DePauw students to shadow you or your colleagues at work.

Networking-  Contact us if you would like to assist students with expanding their professional connections

Continued Support after graduation

The Hubbard Center can provide assistance with your resume, direct you toward job search resources, and help you with career exploration. Alumni continue to have access to Handshake, the job and internship portal, but may need to request an account. If you need assistance with Handshake, contact <hubbard@depauw.edu>.


Parents Council

The Parents Council provides a link between families and the University. Parents Council members assist students in exploring their career paths by offering mentoring, networking and career and internship opportunities.  Council members also help to coordinate these offerings from other parents. Feel free to contact the presidents of the Parents Council with any questions.
