Purchase alumni are a fiercely loyal bunch. Your achievements and adventures provide a steady stream of inspiration, excitement, and confidence to current Purchase students. They rely on you for support, whether it means providing advice, sharing job opportunities, telling stories and reminiscing, or opening doors and building professional networks.
There are many ways in which you can leave your alumni footprint on Purchase College. By getting involved with programs, you give back to Purchase and pay it forward for the next generation of alumni. Wherever you are in the world, you can make a difference that will benefit our students and the Purchase College community at large. Below are a few ways you can help:
Mentor current students or offer advice to recent grads as they begin their careers. Share your expertise by speaking at a lecture or on a panel. Host a networking event in your home or place of business. Get social and encourage classmates and fellow alumni to attend Alumni Weekend, regional alumni events, and other programs for alumni.
