Giving Back to Current Students

Alumni Mentoring Program Gathering in jPadMany of our alumni support the college's strong teaching mission by giving back to current students through our Mentor Program, Diederich Experiences or providing internship opportunities. Typically, junior communication students who are in good academic standing are eligible to participate in the Mentor Program and in Diederich Experiences.

These programs allow students to glean valuable insights from professionals like you and help them hone their networking skills.

Los Angeles Mentor Program

Our alumni who have carved out successful careers for themselves in the entertainment industry in Southern California provide networking and mentor support for our current students through Marquette Entertainment & Communications Alumni (MECA). In addition to social networking events, MECA also hosts a committee of engaged and established alumni who volunteer to serve as mentors to new Marquette grads looking to pursue their career goals in Los Angeles.
