Southeastern Connect Mentoring Program

Southeastern Connect is an online networking platform that connects motivated and
career-focused students with alumni who have volunteered to provide insights about
the process of choosing and starting a career in their specific field.

 

Speak to a class

Want to share your real world experiences with students? We can connect you with the
appropriate dean or faculty member to get you back in the classroom – this time, in
front of the room!

 

Chapter Leadership

Volunteer to lead an alumni chapter in your area. Chapters are communities of alumni
(based on geography, special interest groups) that share a commonality that have built
a tie or bond to each other as part of the University experience.

 

Reunion Networking

Help make your upcoming reunion a success by volunteering on the your Class Networking
Committee. Responsibilities include sending electronic communications to classmates
and encouraging reunion attendance.

 

GOLD Council

alumni who are passionate about working to optimize the post graduate experience for
all young alumni, regardless of their involvement as students or their current engagement
with the University as alumni.

is intended to give volunteers the opportunity to help the communities and organizations
that support Southeastern in many ways.

 

Student Recruiting

Helping to spread the word about how great our University is and recruiting students
to attend Southeastern is always an important role of our alumni. We are always seeking
alumni who are willing to open up their home to a select group of area high school
students for the purpose of our Admissions team to share with them all the opportunities
that we have to offer.

Do you love the arts? Serving as a volunteer usher at the Columbia Theatre for the
Performing Arts is a great way to experience all the dance, music, and theatre productions
while also giving back to the university and the community.
