We invite you to join us in actively making a difference for students at Benedictine College. Here are two great ways to get involved and see the difference you can make.
Are you an alum, proud parent, or maybe just someone who admires Benedictine College and want to be part of helping students? Consider volunteering with us. As a volunteer, you can do many things to give back:
- Volunteer to serve on your reunion committee.
- Be a class agent.
- Attend an event in your area or come back to campus for homecoming, alumni reunion weekend, or other ongoing events.
- Attend the annual Scholarship Ball.
- Bring a prospective student to a local event in your area or recommend an admissions counselor come and visit the student.
- Host an alumni event at your home or business.
- Become a career center volunteer and help students and alumni with important questions about your field, changing jobs, internships, mentoring, job search and more.
- Volunteer to assist with fundraising efforts for the College – serve on a committee, chair your class giving, recommend prospective donors and more.
- If possible, attend a Benedictine sporting event in your area and cheer on the Ravens.
- Have a “mini” alumni event with your college roommates, fellow teammates, and other friends from college. Call the alumni office at 913.360.7414 to get an “Event in a Box” to help with your event.
Let us know if you have interest in volunteering and we will connect you with our Volunteer Coordinator. You can contact Joanne Huey, Director of Alumni Relations, at 913.360.7675 or email@example.com.
Assist current students and/or graduates in networking, internships or job placement
Students from all over the country come to Benedictine to hone their talents into skills they can take into their careers and beyond. If you would like to help students gain practical career experience, consider helping place students in internships or work study arrangements.
Contact Jennifer Dittemore, Director of Career Services, at 913.360.7578 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to have a student intern or work for your company, or if you would like to assist in finding such opportunities in our community for students.
