Alumni Engagement

Alumni Engagement

Our alumni are successful and well-connected in the industries our students want to enter. Their support matters when recruiting the next generation of project managers, facility managers, program managers, and real estate developers.

Our students get to meet often with alumni. Thanks to opportunities within the program, students run into alumni as guest speakers, internship managers, panelists at symposiums, and site tour hosts.

Those bonds facilitate business connections and networking. Students are familiar with our alumni, and can ask candid questions about career guidance, data for projects, and research.

BSBC Alumna Named Outstanding Young Alumni Award Honoree

Jacquelyn Renée Schneider (BC ‘06, MBA ‘18) is the 2022 recipient.

The Outstanding Young Alumni award is one of four categories honored at the Georgia Institute of Technology Alumni Association’s Gold & White Honors Gala each year. It is given to a Georgia Tech alumnus/alumna who has not reached his/her fortieth birthday by February 4, 2022 and who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and service to Georgia Tech and the Georgia Tech Alumni Association, the community and his/her profession.

We sat down with Jacquelyn Renée Schneider to discuss her time in the School of Building Construction and her advice for current students and new alumni.

Opportunities to Share Your Experience and Expertise

Alumni often ask for additional ways to get involved. There are plenty of ways that the School of Building Construction could benefit from your involvement. Here are just a few:

  • Provide an internship or career opportunity to a student: Students need the experience and you need the talent. Hire a student today.
  • Mentor a student: Spending time with a student and sharing your experience is an excellent way to help shape a future leader. 
  • Host a site visit: Do you have an interesting project or facility in the metro area? Students learn so much from visiting these active sites and completed complex facilities. Consider opening your site or office for a student tour.
  • Visit a class: Share your expertise and bring positive attention to your organization. Many of the faculty seek guest speakers, panelists, and judges for Capstone, etc. 
  • Schedule an Info Session: Our students want to hear and learn how you have made an impact within your organization and how your organization can be a potential match for their career path. 
  • Scholarship/Fund a graduate student: Students always seek funding to complete their degree. Your donation can provide a scholarship for a deserving student. Graduate students may also be funded for providing research for your organization.
