We Do More Than Just Alumni Weekend!
As an organization in our effort to rebrand and reintroduce ourselves to many current and former Oakwood students, and friends of Oakwood, we are showing how we’ve positively evolved and changed versus talking about how we’ve evolved and changed. Many believe the events and programming that happen during Oakwood alumni weekend is all that we do as an organization. Your Oakwood University Alumni Association (OUAA) does more than alumni weekend. In addition to alumni weekend OUAA does three mission initiatives which are:
Being student focused the Oakwood Alumni Association is active year round and busy providing engagement and connecting opportunities between alumni and our students or what we call them, the pre-alumni. Perhaps you’ve heard about some of our hugely successful connectivity events such as the spring semester Midnight Pancakes on the Lawn or our fall semester New Student Frozen Yogurt Event. Both are student favorites. Our amazing students need more than these events to connect with a few Oakwood alumni. They need to connect with you.
Our Greatest Resource is YOU!
This year, we are rolling out new programs to connect alumni with current and recent grads for a mentoring and internship experience like none other. Thanks to technology, there are many new ways to stay connected. We envision mentoring coast to coast with Alumni’s and current or recent graduates connecting with internships, mentoring, and more. Together we can imagine a future where Oakwood graduates have a real edge: that real edge is you, partnering with us as we support our scholars towards their promising future.
Oakwood is known for the rich relationships of its people. We are the heart and soul of what makes this place like no other. With God at the center of all we do, Oakwood University’s draw is due largely to its amazing relationships that make “The Oakwood experience.” Alumni know first-hand how powerful and life changing attending Oakwood can be.
Oakwood students will be able to connect with someone in their field and obtain real life experiences. What a great way to give back and lift up. Our students need us as much as we need them to keep things fresh and new. Having a student is a huge bonus to your business or organization because they can provide a new perspective for you.
There are three important ways you can help. These ways are in providing Internships, Sponsorship, and Mentoring. All ways are important methods of giving back to ensure the next generation of Oakwood scholars has the needed support to be successful in life.
