Volunteer

There are many ways to reconnect to your alma mater and enjoy Mount Union after leaving campus. Whether you enjoy volunteering at events, mentoring students, investing in the future of Mount Union or just gathering fellow alumni and friends together in your city, we can assist you!

We are currently looking for alumni volunteers for the areas listed below. These typically do not require a long-term commitment, which is a great way to give back to Mount Union when it's convenient for you.

Contact Office of Alumni Engagement at alumni@mountunion.edu if you're interested in getting involved. 

  1. Student Recruitment 

    College Fairs

    Do you have a few hours to promote the University of Mount Union to prospective students in your area? The Alumni Association has partnered with the Office of Enrollment Management to offer alumni the opportunity to represent Mount Union at local college fairs in various locations. As a participating volunteer, you will share your ideas, communicate knowledge, identify useful resources, and clarify educational and professional goals at the college fairs.

    Admissions representatives will train each volunteer in advance and equip volunteers with materials to have on hand at the fair, as well as a nametag at no cost. The Office of Alumni Engagement will also provide you with Raider gear to wear. Contact the Office of Alumni Engagement at alumni@mountunion.edu if interested.

    Refer a Student to Mount Union

    Share your experience with a prospective high school student and encourage them to visit campus and visit the website for information regarding academic programs and campus life. You can also share a future student's information with Mount Union through our Refer A Prospective Student form.

  2. Brand Ambassadors 

    Buzz Boxes

    Promote Mount Union to in your community at locations you visit on a regular basis! We’ll send you a purple box of Mount Union goodies. You get to keep a few items and pass out the others to prospective high school students. Leave items at your church, local school, restaurant, doctor or dentist office, or anywhere to spread the Mount Union name. All of the details on how the program works are included in the box. You’ll be sent an additional gift if you complete the included tasks!

    Dinner with 12 Strangers

    The idea is simple. Attend a dinner with students and alumni for an evening of good food, conversation, and networking. The goal of the event is to strengthen the connection between students and alumni by sharing campus and career experiences in a casual environment. It is our hope that both groups will be able to utilize this time in getting to know each other personally, professionally, and build a relationship.
