Alumni

Connect

Every year Communication Arts graduates more than 400 majors who go out and do amazing things in the world.  We have over 100 years worth of alumni out there, and we'd like to re-connect with you.  Please take a moment and send us some news: What are you doing?  Where have you been?  Any words of advice for today's graduates?  Send updates via email to Professor Michael Xenos, department chair (xenos@wisc.edu).  We'll post them on our Updates page.

News

Keep up to date on department news by joining us on Facebook and on Twitter. We post weekly stories about the activities and accomplishments of our students, faculty, and alumni, and about important events on campus.

Help

Can you help a current student with an internship? We rely on our network of alumni to help our majors get the experience that they need. Internships can take place either during the regular fall and spring semesters, or over the summer. We currently place about 80 students a year in internships, and would like to place even more. If you have an internship opportunity to post here, please complete the Internship Announcement Form and submit it to Mary Rossa, our undergraduate advisor. If you live on the West Coast, consider connecting with the alumni-led organization Hollywood Badgers.

Give

We rely on the generosity of our alumni to help us maintain our programs and keep up the excellence of our research and the quality of our instruction. Alumni gifts support named professorships, help us update our labs with state of the art equipment, aid faculty in research, fund awards and scholarships for our students, and help support students doing unpaid internships. Visit our Giving page to learn about some of our major needs and giving opportunities. Your contributions can make a real difference, at whatever level you are able.
