Alumni Events

Would you like to sponsor and/or host a Mary Baldwin event? Be a part of an alumni chapter in your region?

Ask three to five alumni in your area to brainstorm about an event. Discuss the type of event, the time, date, cost, and location. Remember, location can be extremely important to the success of an event! Topics such as parking, convenience, and safety are all key issues and should be taken into consideration. You may want to delegate responsibilities for menu, flowers, invitations, RSVP and phone tree. Contact the Alumni Engagement Office at 800.763.7359 to share thoughts, obtain assistance, and schedule the event on the master calendar.
