Our alumni are always on the move! In order for us to keep up with ever-changing e-mails, jobs and new addresses, we have decided to work with Harris Connect to help us update our alumni contact information. Harris Connect specializes in alumni and membership publications, helping schools and various organizations around the country maintain a current database.
You can register and access our current online directory from this page anytime you would like. We are currently working with Harris to produce a beautiful, hardcover directory that will allow you to reconnect with old friends as well as network professionally. These tools will also allow Benedictine community members to stay in tune with our school news, activities and events.
In the next few months, Harris Connect will contact you by e-mail, snail mail and/or by phone to verify and update your contact and career information. Thank you in advance for your participation!
Monday through Friday, Harris Connect makes calls beginning at 8:00 a.m. and continuing until about 9:00 p.m., in all time zones. They may try to contact you at work during the day, in the evening, or during the weekend at home. On Saturdays, they may call from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; on Sundays they call from 12:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. If you are contacted at a time that is inconvenient for you, simply let the representative know. S/he will give you the Harris Connect toll-free number or will arrange to call you later.
We've asked Harris Connect to contact everyone; primarily to make absolutely sure that the data we have is current. You'd be surprised how many people change jobs or move between the time they complete an online questionnaire and the time the directory is ready to print. Plus, we want to be sure that all information is correct so that our directory is accurate and useful.
Although everyone will be given the opportunity to purchase his or her own copy of the directory, your name will be listed regardless of whether you decide to purchase a copy.
Harris Connect can still update your information for us, but will honor your specific request to exclude all or parts of your biographical data from the publication.
We have arranged to print as many directories as are ordered before we go to press. So, if you do change your mind prior to publication, you can call 1-800-877-6554.
The directory may be paid for by major credit card or check. Payment(s) may be made by credit card at the time of order or by check upon receipt of the invoice(s). We also offer installment payment plans, allowing you to pay a portion now and the rest later.
On statements for most major credit cards, “HC” will appear with part of or the entire name of the institution, e.g. HC State University. On American Express statements, “Harris Connect” will appear with part of or the entire name of the institution, e.g. Harris Connect State University.
Orders for the directory may be canceled by simply writing the word "Cancel" on the invoice and returning it to Harris Connect or by calling the Harris Connect Customer Service Department at 1-800-877-6554. Be sure to provide the account number when calling.
