We want to reconnect with you and welcome you back to Fairleigh Dickinson University, Becton College, Department of English, Communication and Philosophy! We'd like to invite you to revisit your major and your friends from the department.

Check out links to services that FDU continues to offer you long after graduation including: Alumni Services, Career Connections, and Library Link.

Help us guide our current and future students to get the most from their major. We hope to gain insight from you on issues of:

- education
- entering the workplace
- career experience


In the coming months we'd like to send our students out to meet you at your jobsite. The students will interview you about your experiences beyond graduation and then post your photo and your best advice on the website to share with current, potential and former students and visitors to the site. Participate in this project. Email Dr. Hester Coan, internship director, and let her know that you are ready to reconnect, ready to encourage today's students and help them to make important career choices of their own.
