All of our alumni are part of a special network -- the Marian Network! There are many ways to connect with fellow alumni, university faculty, and current students. If you are interested in networking with alumni, mentoring students, or offering professional opportunities to students or graduates, check out the many ways to participate in the Marian Network.
LinkedIn is a business oriented social networking site that offers professionals a way to connect with people they trust. LinkedIn can help both students and graduates network with other professionals in their field of interest. Marian University students and alumni are invited to sign up on LinkedIn and join the Marian University (formerly Marian College) group. All group participants can post on the group discussion board and group jobs tab.
