Affinity Group Volunteer
Marywood offers many opportunities to connect while a student. Now that you've graduated, don't let that stop you from connecting with like-minded peers. The Office of Alumni Engagement is always looking to connect alumni with similar interests. Whether it be a sport, a music interest, or a bonding through culture, we are here to support your goals of connecting.

Alumni Mentoring Program
The Office of Alumni Engagement, in collaboration with the Office of Career Development, works to connect undergraduate students with alumni to offer a support system through their time at Marywood. Connections through career goals, leadership experiences, or general questions - we know our alumni can help guide our future community members. In addition, networking sessions open to alumni and students offer the chance for our newest alumni to also gain mentorship.

Giving Day Ambassador
Giving Day is a 24-hour fundraising challenge when students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community come together in support of Marywood students and our core values. You can help in many ways leading up to and on the big day. Serve as an Ambassador to help make this year's Giving Day one of the best.
Hire Marywood Talent
The Career Development Center posts jobs on a regular basis, and many of our academic programs require students to experience an internship. Our alumni deserve to have the best team possible, and therefore we want to connect our employers with our students. Pacers supporting Pacers! Let us know when you have an opening.
Social Media Ambassador
Social Media Ambassadors assist the Office of Alumni Engagement in spreading the word about upcoming events, congratulatory notes, and exciting announcements on social platforms.
The best way to welcome incoming students is by celebrating them with those who have walked under the Marywood Arch themselves. If you are interested in throwing a celebratory gathering for incoming students as a "send off" or "welcome to Marywood," we are thrilled to facilitate it.
Alumni on the Move
We are always thrilled when our alumni make career moves or are open to new adventures that bring them to new areas. The Office of Alumni Engagement can serve as a bridge to helping you find or welcome new friends near your new home.
Service is in the fabric of Marywood. As a student, it is clear that service to others is what makes our communities a better place. That value only expands as we enter the professional world, create families, and advance our careers - implementing service, no matter where you are, keeps some of the best part of Marywood thriving. The Office of Alumni Engagement, in collaboration with Campus Ministry, is always looking for the service you are doing in your communities.
