Alumni Pay it Forward

Our alumni are generous with their time and talent to help the next generation succeed. Many come back to campus to speak with current students about their own experiences and welcome students to shadow them, or extend internship or co-op opportunities. Some of these connections even lead to full-time jobs, making that Widener link truly something special.
