Alumni Network Activities & Events

Internship Showcase & ePortfolio Review

Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019: The School of Communications will host its annual Internship Showcase & ePortfolio Review. Snow Atrium, Schar Hall. We welcome alumni to participate by recruiting intern/job applicants and to review ePortfolios for our juniors and seniors. No charge for a table. We hope you can participate in at least two or all our kickoff events for Get Connected: Internships & ePortfolio Reviews. We are providing an opportunity for you to talk with multiple students during our internship/job walk-in hours. In addition, you can talk one-on-one with at least two of our upperclassmen for 30 minutes, and to view and assess their ePortfolios/reels. We’ll also provide afternoon refreshments, a tour of our new communications facilities, and lunch with our new dean. Dr. Rochelle Ford is excited to meet you. Please feel free to bring any paraphernalia and materials you would like to share with students. Please respond by Monday, Jan. 30, to this registration link.

Elon in L.A. announces new initiative

The School of Communications is happy to announce the formation of the “Women’s Elon Entertainment Empire” (WEEE), a new initiative of the Elon in L.A. program.

The mission of WEEE is to promote equal opportunities for women in the arts, support current Elon female students and alumni in L.A., and champion the female creative voice in all artistic disciplines. A long-term goal is to also establish the WEEE scholarship for need-based students to participate in the Elon in L.A. summer program.
