From student recruitment to local chapter organizing, from mentoring students to financial support, there's no end to the ways in which to stay involved with your CEU community!
Alumni are among the most loyal and generous supporters of CEU. Over the last seven years, alumni have contributed more than $340,000 to the Alumni Campaign.

Local Chapter Building
One of the most fulfilling ways to get involved is to actively participate in your local alumni network. Help building or maintaining a local CEU group and support a vivid and active alumni community. Alumni Chapters and groups in many counties or cities provide platform for people with the same interest, education and worldview. If you are not yet a member of any alumni group, do join one and benefit from the endless opportunities brought by CEU alumni network.

Can you recall the times when you were still student, trying to find your career path? When you were eager to get some inspiration from others? Especially from those with the same experience and, maybe, similar challenges?
Now it’s your chance to offer this advice to a younger fellow from CEU: be a career mentor! Whether you are an experienced professional or you graduated recently, but willing to share useful tips for entering the job market, you are welcome to join the community of alumni mentors. Help students explore their options, give insights into your career path, profession or workplace culture, share your thoughts about the value of CEU degree or the need of acquiring other skills. You are not expected to offer jobs or internship position, information and guidance would be more than welcome.
