From Senior to Alumnus
Welcome to your senior year. It’s been quite an experience so far, and yet you still have a one last chapter to enjoy and complete before you officially become a college graduate and join more than 61,000 fellow Huskies nationwide as a member of the Alumni Association. So let the fun begin! Throughout the coming months, you will be receiving information from the Alumni Association with all of the resources and opportunities available to you as a future alumnus. One of the most important resources is the alum website, where even as a current senior you have access to 95 percent of its features. Now is a good a time as any to start exploring!
Get involved with the Alumni Association now and not only discover a new side to the BU experience but begin networking with successful alums who most certainly are great resources for job searching tips, internship opportunities, job openings and even possible job references.
The alumni website features news articles on the great things alumni are doing and achieving all over the world and event offerings throughout the state and country that you’re welcome to attend. Also there are various volunteer opportunities open to you now, and of course, when you're an alum.
Get a leg up on your competition and jump-start your job search months before walking the graduation stage by taking advantage of the alumni association and its online network. Connect with the Alumni Association on Facebook and the BU Alumni Group on LinkedIn to interact, get tips and advice, and begin building your professional network. Of course, you’re always welcome to contact Nate Conroy ‘06, assistant director of Alumni Affairs, at (570) 389-4214 for more information or with any questions.
