SGA Alumni Representative

The Office of Alumni Relations hosts occasional lunch meetings each year for the SGA Alumni Representatives from each on-campus class. The purpose of these meetings is to allow the students to discuss the roles and responsibilities of alumni representatives as well as to brainstorm and share programming ideas with one another. Alumni staff members also periodically solicit feedback from these students on ways both to build awareness of the Alumni Association and to increase affinity for the University among current students.

Support for Clubs and Classes

The WesternU Alumni Association’s Student Activity Fund provides financial support to clubs and classes that meet at least one of the following criteria:

1. Build a sense of community among students
2. Enhance the student experience outside the classroom
3. Facilitate student-alumni interaction

Officially recognized clubs and classes can request up to $300 to support their activities. The Alumni Funds Request Form is available online and should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the activity date. (Clubs and classes that are approved for funding will receive their money as a reimbursement after turning in a completed Reimbursement Form and receipts at the conclusion of their activity.) Some examples of past club and class activities include socials, banquets, barbecues, athletic tournaments, and guest lectures. An endowment has been created to ensure that such funding remains in perpetuity. Further, the Alumni Office can help clubs and classes reach out to alumni to do such things as request their participation in surveys or encourage their attendance at events.
