Giving back by joining in

Mount Ida alumni have a proud, longstanding tradition of supporting the college in a variety of meaningful ways. In addition to providing critical financial support, you give of your time, your knowledge and your attention—to one another and to Mount Ida students.


By joining the Alumni Council, you are able to reconnect and network with one another while providing valuable reinforcement and guidance to the association and Mount Ida as a whole.

As alumni, you also have a powerful impact on the college and our students by engaging directly with the Mount Ida community. Alumni volunteer as mentors to students, advising and guiding them on career preparations and academics. You also help the college build relationships with corporations by brokering a connection between your own employers and Mount Ida, thus aiding in the establishment of internships and potential employment opportunities for students.

Alumni can also assist in the transition from classroom to workplace by participating in career services seminars, job fairs and other initiatives from the Career Services Office.

And, if you’re comfortable reflecting on your own experiences, you can provide valuable insights as part of a lecture series or school-wide marketing materials.

However you choose to become involved, you can be assured that your contributions will be met with appreciation and gratitude—from your fellow alumni, from current students and from your beloved alma mater.
