Experience HRSM

Connect with Engaged Alumni

Successful students turn into successful alumni and industry partners. And because we treat one another like family, our alumni want to stay in touch, and continue to "pay it forward" to future generations of leaders — including students like you!

Perhaps there's no better testament to the level of support that we lend to students like you — both personally and professionally — than our very own alumni.

Whether they simply stay connected through our HRSM social media accounts, come back to campus to present as classroom speakers, or even attend events like Homecoming or our annual Alumni Society Career Night, we take great pride in the relationships that we maintain with our alumni. But what's even more powerful are those moments when current students and alumni make genuine connections by interacting with one another at events throughout the year.

Alumni Society Career Night

Held each fall and spring, the purpose of Alumni Society Career Night is to help HRSM students practice their networking skills and prepare for the real world that awaits them after graduation. Students are provided a unique and safe environment to meet with industry professionals, while HRSM alumni are connected with young professionals pursuing careers in their respective fields. The support of over 50 HRSM alumni and friends are needed annually, and every year their generosity makes it a huge success for students and employers alike!

Distinguished Alumni and Friends of the College

The College of HRSM Distinguished Alumni and Friends of the College Awards were established in 1981 to recognize alumni who have established records of distinction in their respective fields or endeavors. These individuals have outstanding professional achievements as well as exhibit responsible citizenship within the communities that they serve. With a network of nearly 20,000 alumni, these individuals are truly the best of the best! And many, if not all, are still actively engaged with the college and are eager to help you succeed!
