Marianapolis needs its alumni's gifts and talents. There are a number of ways for you to get involved in the lives of our students throughout the school year.
The Centers of Excellence (COE) help our students connect their work in the classroom in a practical way through three-week supervised internships and a capstone project. Mentoring a student as an intern will help our current students to gain confidence and skills in an area they would like to explore in the future. Becoming a COE mentor is an excellent way to connect with a student and share your expertise.
Each October, the College Placement Office invites colleges and universities from across the United States to our annual College Fair. Some schools are unable to send representatives but will provide materials and offer the opportunity for an alumna/us to represent their alma mater at the fair. It’s a great way to show your college pride.
Class Agents advocate on behalf of Marianapolis and serve as ambassadors for the Development & Alumni Affairs Office, working to reconnect with classmates and help ensure that alums remain connected to the School. Your firsthand experiences at Marianapolis and connections with classmates make you an ideal candidate for this volunteer position. Each graduating class has at least one Class Agent — both domestic and international alums are encouraged to serve in Class Agent roles in order to maximize outreach.
What do Class Agents do?
Class Agents work with the Alumni Office to:
Communicate with classmates via mail, e-mail, or social networking platforms
Collect email addresses and updated contact information from fellow alums
Locate classmates who may have lost contact with Marianapolis
Encourage alumni engagement via events (regional in-person events, Alumni Weekend, virtual events, etc.)
Promote participation in annual giving and reunion class giving
There are still openings for Class Agents! Contact the Development and Alumni Affairs Office at 860-923-9565 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in serving as a Class Agent.
Receptions are a great way to get alumni together in a region for personal and professional development opportunities. Meaningful relationships have always been a hallmark of the Marianapolis experience and these events create an atmosphere of warmth and friendship that perpetuates engagement between alumni. Receptions also allow for you to learn more about what is happening at Marianapolis on a different level.
An integral part of alumni relations at Marianapolis is the Alumni Council. Council (formerly known as the Alumni Association Board) was formed in 2012. It's purpose is to establish a networking system that will facilitate the communication between alumni and Marianapolis. The Council will also help organize and sponsor social events (reunions, alumni weekend, golf tournaments) and meetings to enhance the interaction between alumni and Marianapolis. It is also one of numerous platforms that allow alumni to serve their alma mater.
