Southeastern Connect Mentoring Program

Southeastern Connect is an online networking platform that connects motivated and career-focused students with alumni who have volunteered to provide insights about the process of choosing and starting a career in their specific field.


Speak to a class

Want to share your real world experiences with students? We can connect you with the appropriate dean or faculty member to get you back in the classroom – this time, in front of the room!


Chapter Leadership

Volunteer to lead an alumni chapter in your area. Chapters are communities of alumni (based on geography, special interest groups) that share a commonality that have built a tie or bond to each other as part of the University experience.


Reunion Networking

Help make your upcoming reunion a success by volunteering on the your Class Networking Committee. Responsibilities include sending electronic communications to classmates and encouraging reunion attendance.


GOLD Council

Each spring, 10-12 new GOLD Council members, from the graduating classes of the last ten years, are selected to serve on our young alumni advisory board. The Council seeks alumni who are passionate about working to optimize the post graduate experience for all young alumni, regardless of their involvement as students or their current engagement with the University as alumni.

Help spread the word about all the great things going on at Southeastern. Volunteer by subscribing to a bi-weekly digest and sharing links on social media.

The Big Event

Join over 1,000 students, faculty, staff and alumni for a day of community service in the City of Hammond and surrounding areas. Sponsored by the SGA, The Big Event is intended to give volunteers the opportunity to help the communities and organizations that support Southeastern in many ways.


Student Recruiting

Helping to spread the word about how great our University is and recruiting students to attend Southeastern is always an important role of our alumni. We are always seeking alumni who are willing to open up their home to a select group of area high school students for the purpose of our Admissions team to share with them all the opportunities that we have to offer.


Columbia Theatre Usher

Do you love the arts? Serving as a volunteer usher at the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts is a great way to experience all the dance, music, and theatre productions while also giving back to the university and the community.
