Young Alumni Committee (YAC)
The mission of the YAC is to establish and enhance a mutually beneficial and enduring relationship between Medaille College and alumni who earned an undergraduate degree in the last ten years. The role and responsibilities of the YAC will be:
Supporting Students – YAC will help design and implement a program in which recent alumni reach out to current Medaille seniors to help Medaille provide a bridge to the "real world” that exists beyond graduation. Alums learn so much the first few years out of college that their mentoring would be extremely valuable to students.
Event planning for Graduates Of the Last Decade (GOLD) – YAC will focus on planning events and activities that are young, fun, and simple! The first event of 2008 might be a LEAP DAY Bar Night; leap years like 2008 have an extra day, so why not celebrate? Many have requested Medaille Night at a Buffalo Sabres game.
Helping to Increase Participation – YAC will provide input and feedback on ways to bring more alumni into the fold, and select members of YAC may be asked to serve on the Alumni Board to represent the ideas, perspective and needs of younger alums. The Alumni Relations Office has been actively recruiting alums to join the Alumni Facebook page and LinkedIn Group.
Plan a Social Event
Help us organize fun social events for alumni. Social events are designed to enhance the link between alumni and the College. We can set up a community service project, cultural event, picnic, T.G.I.F. party or a sporting event. Let your creativity be your guide, and contact us through our volunteer form
with your ideas. Take a look at our event calendar
to see what we have planned and register online for events.
Organize a Networking Event
Do you have an idea for a networking event for alumni? We would like to hear from you. Networking events should offer graduates the opportunity to build relationships with fellow alums. The purpose could be to foster career development, to learn workplace strategies, to discuss entrepreneurial endeavors, or to offer financial seminars. Use the volunteer form
to share your ideas.
