The summer graduation season is all but at an end. Watched by their parents, thousands of students have received their degrees, had their photos taken, and said their final fairwells to their University friends and tutors.
But as the last of the graduation ceremonies closes, you may ponder just how many of these students and parents your University will see or interact with again. In the absence of an up to date contact list, I would guess not very many.
For this reason, the Graduation Ceremonies are perhaps the most important days of the year for any alumni team.
It is a golden opportunity to grow and cleanse your alumni database.
With a stall placed next to the gown pick up point, and a number of laptops borrowed from colleagues, it’s well within your team’s grasp to record every graduate’s contact details directly into your online alumni database.
Would a complete set of final year contact details be useful to your alumni & development team?
