One great way to stay connected and involved with your alma mater and alumni association is through a variety of volunteer opportunities. The enthusiasm, dedication, and personal touch that only an alumnus/a volunteers can have make the difference between a good event or conversation and a great one! We depend on our alumni volunteers to be ambassadors of their Alumni Association and the University, and to help us connect with alumni in new and creative ways. Below are descriptions of several different ways to get involved.
