Villanova Communication Alumni Network

The Villanova Communication Alumni Network (VCAN) is an exciting alumni program designed to connect those working in all areas of communication, including advertising, radio, TV, film, graphic arts, journalism, marketing, media, academia, public relations, and more, with other alumni.  These connections lead to many new networking opportunities, mentorship relationships, as well as create internship and job possibilities for current Villanova students.

Membership in markets with networks is open to all alumni who graduated with a major or minor in Communication, as well as those from other majors who work or study in the industry.

The program has received great support and enthusiasm from its current networks and is always looking to welcome new members.
