Make a difference in the life of a student. The office of Career Services’ Next Step Network program provides an excellent opportunity for alumni to interact with students and help them make good career decisions, build confidence and to assist them in moving forward as they enter the professional workforce. Your own experiences, both pre and post-graduation, will be beneficial to students in all aspects of professionalism, leadership, communication and career planning.
Sit on a discipline-based panel or be a guest lecturer in the classroom. Share your professional and educational experience with students who will follow into your field of expertise. You might make a significant impact on their career path while networking with fellow alumni.
Attend Alumni Association Board of Directors meetings (everyone is welcome) and join others who act as liaisons between the University and the alumni body. Help chart your alma mater’s course and its future alumni, the students, by serving on one of nine committees focused on shaping the growth and development of the University
Attend sports events and cheer on our student athletes. Your participation gives “home team advantage” meaning. Can’t attend sports events? Make a donation – this is another way to support your alma mater while playing an important role in students’ careers and future. Go to www.usciences.edu/give to make a donation.
Be a part of the STAR Program and assist the Admission Office with recruitment. Share your own campus experiences with prospective students at high school college fairs and play an important role in personalizing the admission process. As a representative or “face” of the University, your help in answering prospective students’ questions and concerns is invaluable. The Admission office needs your help with interviewing and telephoning prospective students as well. A short training program is mandatory. For more details on the STAR Program go to www.usciences.edu/alumni/starprogram.shtml
Throw a party. The Office of Alumni Relations coordinates receptions for students, alumni, current and former faculty to gather at special locations to meet the president, network, socialize, and catch up. These receptions take place throughout the country – where ever we have alumni. If you would like to host an event, please contact the Alumni Office.
Take part in student/alumni activities or help staff events. Move-In Day, Student Appreciation Day, Olympics, Career Fair and Convocation are just a few of the activities in which you can interact and play a role in creating positive school experiences for students.
