Learn about how to get involved as an alumna or alumnus

Are you interested in serving as a mentor for a current Liberal Arts undergraduate student? Mentors serve as coaches and guides to help students make the transition from student to professional. Your experience as a Liberal Arts alumna or alumnus can serve as a guide to current students. Whether sharing details about your own career progression or providing advice to current students, there are multiple options for connecting with students, including programs at the Department, College, and University levels.

The Career Enrichment Network is eager to connect with Liberal Arts alumni through a variety of avenues.  Please click on the appropriate links below for more information or contact us if you have a question or require additional information.

The Liberal Arts Alumni Mentor Program matches current undergraduate Liberal Arts students with alumni in a field related to their major and/or career interests.  It is a great way for alumni to make an impact on campus and support Penn State students! Mentors do not have to be local to be involved and usually speak to students via phone, video chat, and/or in person once a month or every other week. Mentors work with students to reflect on their experiences and goals, develop new skills, and network for the future. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, complete the online registration. Contact with any questions about the program.

Do you have an internship opportunity with your organization that you would like to share with current Liberal Arts undergraduates?  Learn more about how to register with and post the opportunity via the Career Enrichment Network Symplicity system.

Learn more about recent developments within the College and how you can get involved.
