Our Success Is Your Success
You’re making a big investment in college. Based on the stream of news from our alumni, we know that their investment has paid off, and yours will, too.
To help ensure your success, we offer a well-staffed Career & Professional Development office and a series of programs appropriate for all four of your years as an undergraduate. Our staff will support you through choices you make during your college career that will position you best for your professional future. Whether picking the right classes, choosing a major or minor, finding a great internship, or looking for work during college that aligns your passions and interests – we are here for you.
And when you graduate from St. Norbert College, we believe that you, just like the alumni who have gone before you, will be aligned for success in the career and calling that best fits you.
It’s hard work. It’s also your choice to participate in the programs and opportunities that will push you. Remember, this is your journey to finding the unique contribution you alone can make in the world. We think you are up for the challenge!
What do you want to major in? If you know the answer to that question, you’re lucky. But if you don’t, you are not alone and that’s just fine. In fact, of those who enter college with a major in mind, a large number of students change their minds in due course. They have benefited from classes that open their eyes to exciting new fields they might not even have considered earlier.
We love helping students find quality internships with local companies. Stop in and let’s talk about your interests, and we’ll show you what’s available. We have well-established relationships with the business community and can guide you in the right direction for a great match. (Most opportunities like these are paid!)
For those of you who are interested in teaching, we have an exceptional program that connects you to real-world teaching experiences as early as your sophomore year. In addition, you’ll have a student-teaching assignment as a senior. Your education-faculty advisor will walk you through the options. If you’re interested in teaching, check out our teacher-education website.
Proof Is in the Pudding – and in the Alumni of St. Norbert College!
Our latest survey shows that more than 92 percent of our students are employed or attending graduate school within nine months of graduating. In fact, more than 61 percent of last year’s graduating class knew their future plans before they even had their diploma in hand.
And our alumni network watches out for our new graduates. They often post job openings, attend our career placement programs and serve as career mentors. Imagine: That will be you in the not-so-distant future!
Now and Later
Our graduates are well prepared to not only land their first job, but to find exceptional opportunities again and again. They also know that if they want to make a change in their professional life, they can always call upon St. Norbert College’s network of alumni, or on the Career & Professional Development office, whether they graduated three months or 30 years ago.
