Alumni Make a Difference at St. Edward’s
The St. Edward’s University Alumni Association is a family of more than 25,000 graduates. Alumni support the hilltop through service throughout Texas and across the country. We are grateful to the hundreds of alumni who volunteer each year, positively impacting the university with their time and talents. Our 2019–2020 alumni volunteers are featured in our Honor Roll of Volunteers.
Admission Volunteers assist the Office of Admission by representing St. Edward's University at local high school college fairs all over the country, where they staff tables and answer questions from prospective students and their parents. Admission volunteers can also help by contacting prospective students on behalf of St. Edward’s, hosting recruitment events, or referring prospective students for admission.
Share knowledge and insights with students by volunteering your time to be a guest speaker or panelist for various St. Edward’s University organizations. You can also hire a St. Edward's University student, create an internship opportunity, write career-related blogs or provide a job shadowing experience. For more information, please contact Araceli Perez-Ramos in Career and Professional Development at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Career Volunteers share their on-the-job knowledge and insights with current students and/or young alumni. Volunteers are invited to be guest speakers or panelists for university programs, or can volunteer to talk one-on-one with a current student or young alumnus about their career experience.
Career Volunteers can also help current students by creating an internship opportunity, hiring them for employment, or providing a job shadow experience.
