If your organization or council has been in existence for a while, there are likely alumni who, as past members of the group, might like to keep up-to-date with current group activities. These past group members not only have been where you are now, but they have also acquired knowledge and experience since graduating that might be helpful to you and your organization.

We can help you:

  • Communicate with your alumni by email or newsletter
  • Invite alumni to campus events
  • Involve alumni as speakers or panelists—in-person or virtually (i.e. via Skype)
  • Host a student organization/alumni event

Ready to connect with alumni? Review the Get Connected info sheet, talk with your advisor, and submit a completed proposal form. Questions? Contact Ahren Henby at or 315.726.5754.
