Our connection to Lafayette never ends. Some alumni remain actively linked to our College, while others seek meaningful ways to be involved. Our Alumni Association is dedicated to helping alumni connect with each other and with the College.
As president of the Alumni Association, I’d like to share with you ways you can experience Lafayette and use your talents to enhance the College community.
Helping to shape a student’s career path can be priceless. It’s a natural way for students and alumni to interact—and it’s growing daily. Students and alumni join together, both on and off campus, through internship and externship programs, recruiting activities, career forums, mock interviews, and networking nights.
You can make a significant impact on today’s students as they face a competitive and complex job market. The College’s Office of Career Services will partner with you to explore ways to share your career experiences with students. Discuss whether you or someone you know can offer a January externship or a summer internship by contacting the career services at (610) 330-5115.
By contributing your talents, experiences, and resources, you enrich our community and the future of Lafayette College. Our alumni volunteer network crosses all generations, spans the globe, and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the College community.
I’ll share two examples:
The Alumni Council’s committees handle issues related to chapters, participation, communications, young alumni, international alumni, admissions, affinity groups, and career services.
As a graduate, your life continues to speak well of Lafayette. Potential students in your hometown may notice your Lafayette T-shirt, or their parents may see your career accomplishments. To explore ways for you to partner with the College to recruit new students, contact the Office of Admissions at (610) 330-5100.
You will always be a part of the legacy of Lafayette College. By sharing your ideas, energy, and gifts, you enjoy not only the benefits of the Lafayette community but also the opportunity to build bridges between generations of students whose lives were changed—and continue to be—because of the College on the Hill.
To discover the many truly rewarding ways you can connect, please contact Rachel Nelson Moeller ’88, executive director of Alumni Relations, or me.
