JV Resources

Accessing Slack and CampusGroups

The kellogg-mba Slack workspace is where all Full-Time and Evening and Weekend students communicate socially and for their courses. It's a great place to connect with clubs and student groups. CampusGroups is the events platform where you can sign up for virtual and in-person events hosted by student groups and administration. JVs of current Full-Time students can sign up for Slack and CampusGroups here. Submissions to this form are added to Slack and CampusGroups on a weekly basis.

Career Services for JVs

Open/Close

The Office of Student Life is able to assist JVs with career resources. We can support you with resume reviews, making connections through the Kellogg student, JV, and alumni network, as well as interview preparation or other career needs.

If you are interested in these resources, please send a brief summary of your background and/or career interests and an introduction to Armando Santana. This will help us determine how we can best be of assistance. Additionally, the JV Club has a page of resources for JVs who are searching for a career.

Accessing the Global Hub

Open/Close

Due to protocols in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, access to the Global Hub is not currently permitted for anyone that is not a student, staff, or faculty. This may change, and JVs and students will be notified of any adjustments to this policy.

Finding Childcare and Kellogg Kids

Students can make use of childcare resources available from Northwestern here.

Kellogg Kids is the official Kellogg organization that provides a welcoming environment for partners and families of students. The goal of our club is to create a smooth life transition by providing a support network for the spouses of Kellogg students with children. Find them on CampusGroups and Slack.
