Alumni events can be hosted as one-time events – such as mixers, networking events, and job fairs – or hosted as long-term events where alumni can visit at their leisure to get updates and chat with others in the alumni network. vFairs offers a flexible platform where you can host both one-time events and long-term events!
Why are alumni events important?
Events are an important part of any alumni network program, as they keep alumni connected to their alma mater and to each other. They provide members opportunities to find meaningful employment, connect on personal interests and experiences, and keep networks tied to the school long-term.
What are examples of alumni events?
Alumni events can include one-time events such as networking hours, job fairs, and benefits fairs, or can be hosted long-term through an online portal like vFairs. These long-term events host important information about alumni benefits, discounts, networking and job opportunities, and school updates.
How do I promote alumni events?
Email marketing, social media marketing and referral marketing are popular ways to promote alumni events, however your unique event strategy will depend on how your alumni network prefers to be communicated with. For more information on event marketing, read this guide.
