Alums Give Back to SOC Interns

Webster alumni find opportunities to give back in countless ways.  At the 2013 Internship Expo, several local alumni represented their respective companies and organizations.  All are currently offering credit-bearing, educational internships for SOC students.

Because Webster University’s School of Communications is always searching for new intern partnerships to expand the number of real world experiences available to qualified students, we encourage SOC alumni from every major around the country to let us know if your organization might also be interested in establishing an intern partnership.

If you have other alumni connection ideas or know alumni who are giving back to current students, be sure to let us know that too.
