Mentor a Spec Staffer
We are looking for alums to volunteer a few hours over the year to mentor a member of the Spectator staff or a recent graduates. 

We don’t just seek journalists as mentors. Everyone is welcome, as not all Spectator staffers want to move on to full-time careers in journalism. Spec has reporters and editors, but it also has programmers, advertising sales reps, social media specialists, photographers and designers/graphic artists. Any alum who would be willing to speak with a student or recent graduate a few times per year is warmly welcomed to serve as a mentor.

"For the second straight summer, I worked in graphics for FOX Sports on its golf crew. That involves everything from creating to design research graphics that aired throughout the summer during coverage of USGA events, including most notably the 116th U.S. Open."
