Connecting Students with Alumni

Panther Alumni Week (PAW) connects students with alumni through class presentations, industry panels and networking events. PAW promotes the building of relationships, which leads to networking, internships, mentoring and career opportunities.

We're proud to celebrate the fifth anniversary of PAW! With your involvement, we can make PAW bigger and better than ever.

Each year, we invite alumni to campus to engage with our students on campus by offering real world insight and valuable career advice.

PAW is scheduled for the week of February 5-9, 2018 and will take place on campus and online.

"For me, if PAW was one word it would be 'perspective.' Alumni return to share their perspectives of the benefits of FIU as applied to the world. Current Panthers gain the perspective of the worth of their current experience as seen from the future. Both alumni and students understand the board scope and diversity of our Alumni network...And, as faculty, I just LOVE to witness the success my former students have achieved. We all gain new perspectives and new friendships."John William Bailly, MFA - FIU Alumnus and Honors College Professor

Connect Virtually

Can't make it to campus? We encourage the entire FIU community to join us for PAW Connect: Students & Alumni Virtual Meet Up!

Alumni – Network with current FIU students and recent graduates interested in learning about you and your career. Provide quick career advice about something you wish you’d known when you were in school. By engaging with a fellow Panther, you are enhancing their professional development and ability to network with professionals.

Students & Recent Graduates – Chat with FIU alumni! Ask them about what they studied, what they do professionally, a favorite memory about campus, and career or job searching advice. A great way to connect with several professional contacts, all in one online event.
