Looking to give back to Benedictine by helping to recruit a new flock of Eagles? Personal contact with admitted students is an integral part of our recruitment process. As alumni of Benedictine University, it is our job to cherish the past while nourishing our University's future. You can do just that by reaching out to an admitted student, congratulating them on their acceptance and encouraging them to enroll at Benedictine. Most students are exploring other universities as well, and a personalized postcard from a friendly alumnus can make a big impact.
This project is open to all alumni living in the United States. The project starts during the winter months and continues through the spring to encourage admitted students to enroll at Benedictine. The Office of Alumni Development will supply alumni with contact information for the students, blank postcards with pre-paid postage, sample verbiage to get you started and a timeline for sending the postcards. When possible, alumni will be paired with students who went to the same high school or have similar academic or extracurricular interests. We ask that our alumni volunteers send postcards to at least 10 students, but you are welcome to send more!
Please fill out the form below to be added to our volunteer list, and the Office of Alumni Development will contact you with more information. Thank you for helping us show our new Eagles the true meaning of Benedictine hospitality!
