Alumnae are a college’s success. Alverno’s success does not appear in a handful of famous names or in aggregate earnings figures, but in the thousands of lives our alumnae have touched as productive workers and respected leaders in the communities where they live.
Today, as in the past, Alverno graduates enter the workforce with a proven edge of experience and ability. More than 90% of our students find career work in their field within six months of graduation.
Today we have more than 14,000 members in the Alverno Alumnae Association. Our alumnae stay involved with their alma mater by recruiting new students, fundraising, assessing student performance, and volunteering in the classroom. Many alumnae offer their professional work settings as sites for student internships and make themselves available to students as career mentors.
Graduates of Alverno automatically become members of the Alverno Alumnae Association and receive several benefits as part of their membership — a 15% discount in the bookstore, use of the Computer Center, free library services for one year, use of the Career Education Center, and more.
The association organizes several events such as Homecoming, the Golden Guild anniversary celebrations, Alumnae Awards receptions, monthly alumnae gatherings, and networking breakfasts. The association also cosponsors professional seminars to encourage professional development and networking among its members. Alumnae events reconnect alumnae with the College and with each other, providing opportunities for lifelong learning and social connections.
