EIU Alumni: An Invaluable Commodity

Last weekend, I enjoyed lunch with some students and an EIU grad who had provided an excellent short-term internship last summer. Our alumni connect with current students and support them in many ways: They arrange for internship opportunities, volunteer their time to our career center, and serve on advisory boards for our departments and colleges. All of this loyal alumni support really makes a difference for our students!

Well stated. As an alumnus I would be more than pleased to "pay it forward." During my 1st summer after graduating, I had the tremendous benefit of having an EIU grad as a hiring officer. He offered me all that I needed -- that was a chance.
