Every year, alumni and friends show their support for Principia in many ways! From organizing local events and planning class reunion activities to meeting with prospective students and serving as career contacts, there are a number of opportunities to volunteer and get involved . . . and you're never limited to picking just one. Whether you’re a recent grad or have been an alum for years, below are a few of the ways you can show your appreciation and gratitude for Principia.
There are more than 50 Principia clubs throughout the United States and internationally. Find the club nearest you! Membership in a Principia Club can be an excellent way to feel connected to Principia in your local community. Meet other Principia friends and alumni, attend events, and share with others in your support of Principia’s educational mission. Why not volunteer to serve on your club’s board? Board members help coordinate local events, talks, and gatherings, and provide a vital link to prospective Principians in their area.
Share your career expertise with current Principia students and recent graduates with CareerConnect. Students benefit from interacting with professionals who share their career interest and alumni gain satisfaction from sharing their valuable insights. Career contacts are helpful resources for students as they research careers, industries, and companies, prepare for interviews, and/or evaluate graduate schools.
Serve on a reunion planning committee and encourage your fellow alums to come back for a memorable weekend on campus. Class reunions are held every five years and Affinity Group reunions can be created for a team, a house, or an activity at any time. As an affinity group reunion volunteer, you'll help plan special activities for your class or group and play a vital role in the success of the reunion. You’ll find it rewarding to help bring your classmates, housemates or teammates together again.
Connect with classmates to plan and promote your 50th Reunion celebration. Participate in conference calls with other committee members and campus leadership and work with classmates to make decisions on your 50th Reunion gift to Principia.
Partner with the Alumni & Field Relations Office to communicate with classmates and help build strong relationships with each other and Principia. Help educate others on the importance of class participation and the impact of alumni giving for Principia students today and tomorrow.
