2017 Filled with Opportunities and Events for "Bear Country" Alums
Brookhaven College Alumni & Friends closed out 2017 with a celebration of the holiday season at Brookhaven Country Club on November 29. Attendees at the reception had the perfect opportunity to reconnect with other alums, visit with faculty and engage in some great networking. This marked the fifth event for Brookhaven College Alumni & Friends since the creation of the college's alumni engagement program two years ago.
This past year our alumni participated in
the Hear from Professionals in the Industry series and the Roundtable Discussion sponsored by our Career Development Center. During these events, students were mentored by alumni based on similar academic and/or professional interests. In addition, our Phi Theta Kappa Alpha Delta Pi Chapter and Office of Student Life sponsored an alumni panel where current students got to hear and talk with four of our alums regarding their experiences while at Brookhaven College. Another vital area of our alumni engagement program is to educate our current students on developing a lifelong commitment to Brookhaven. We partnered with our Office of Student Life to roll out "Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow" – a series of presentations to various student leader groups about our alumni engagement program and becoming engaged alumni.
In 2017, we made our greatest strides yet in implementing our mission to reach out to our alums and encourage them to stay connected by attending events and volunteering with various campus activities. With more events to follow, our goal is to continue the momentum and build lifelong relationships with our alumni and friends. We will continue to offer opportunities for our alumni to get involved, based on their passions and availability, with student activities as well as additional alumni networking events.
