The alumni and family relations office plans events throughout the country every year, and we welcome the help of our alums. There are different "levels" of hosting:
Opening your home or place of business for an event arranged by the alumni relations team.
Covering some or all costs of an event, which could include the venue, catering, mailing, and invitation costs.
Organizing your own alum event at the location of your choice. The alumni relations team will provide you with a list of alums and their contact details in your area, publicize the event through email and on our website, and possibly suggest faculty or alum guest speakers. In some cases, it might be possible for us to help staff alum-organized events.
If you would like to host an event, please email us.
When suggesting an event and volunteering to host it, you may wish to consider in advance the event’s purpose, whether to charge for it, the breadth of your invitation list, and whether you would like to cover some or indeed all of the cost of the event yourself.
When hosts cover event costs, the College can issue gift receipts. In these cases, it is advised that a budget for the event be agreed on in advance.
