Actor Julie Bowen, fresh from her latest Emmy win for her work on ABC's Modern Family, will return to her alma mater, Brown University, tomorrow for a brief session with students.

The Brown graduate of ‘91 stars in the popular comedy as Claire Dunphy, a role for which she won Emmy Awards in 2011 and 2012.

Brown students will get the opportunity to ask Bowen any questions they have in an open forum in hopes of getting some insight to her time at Brown, and how to make in the acting world after graduation.

Bowen has also acted in several films including Multiplicity with Michael Keaton, Crazy on the Outside alongside Tim Allen and Happy Gilmore opposite Adam Sandler.

Most recently, other than her role in Modern Family, Bowen has appeared in hit films Horrible Bosses, and Jumping the Broom. Bowen has also been a spokesmodel for Neutrogena and supported the charity efforts of Maxwell House and March of Dimes.
