Fall and Spring Break Networking Trips

Each fall and spring break, the J-school takes up to 20 students to a major U.S. city for a unique networking experience. 

Students meet individually with alumni working in their chosen fields over a 2-day period, and are exposed to the school’s vast network at an alumni and friends reception.

The trip gives students an opportunity to learn from alumni and make connections in the field that can help them secure internships and jobs in the future.

Important details for students:

  • Please note that participants WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS TO AND FROM DESTINATION.
  • The hotel will be in the heart of the city, so appointments should be easily accessible via walking or public transportation. Details on the hotel will be provided at the information session. Rooms are double occupancy. Co-ed rooms are not permitted.
  • Your appointment itineraries will be given to you at least a week before the trip, but keep in mind appointments may change up to the day of the trip. We will provide contact information for all of your appointments. We require you to touch base with all the alumni/friends you are scheduled to see. Introduce yourself by e-mail or phone. Make sure you have clear directions to each office and that you know where to check in once you get to the offices.
