We view our alumni as a source of strength. Since the first graduates in 1969, over 2800 students have successfully completed the program and have assumed positions of leadership in their respective areas of journalism, advertising and public relations.
22 graduates have been recognized as outstanding and distinguished alumni by the university alumni office.
A number of the graduates remain in the Fox Valley, many of them are scattered around Wisconsin, neighboring states and metropolitan areas including Milwaukee, Chicago, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Washington D.C.
