Networking and Alumni Involvement
Fraternities and sororities maintain active alumni relations, which affords many opportunities for career networking. This alumni interaction can lead to many different possibilities in your job search as an undergraduate and graduate. Events such as Homecoming, Alumni weekends, dinners, chapter anniversaries and meetings foster alumni interaction that can put you in contact with men and women in similar career paths. Also, Greek alumni serve as advisors to each chapter. Each chapter has at least one advisor and a house corporation board which assist the chapter in the day-to-day operations and management of the chapter house. Involvement with alumni translates into a variety of memories, extended friendships, and contributes greatly to the overall feelings of camaraderie, history, and networking gained through Greek membership.
No where else on campus can you find a professional network of alumni than through a fraternity or sorority’s alumni group. You’re not only connected with alumni from your campus, but from the entire organization. There are over five million Greek alumni world-wide. This network is helpful in securing internships, summer work, and professional careers.
