Whether it’s sharing professional expertise, hosting a gathering for area Mustangs or encouraging prospective students to enroll, SMU volunteers not only energize connections across campus but also extend the University’s legacy of success. Find out what SMU alumni have to say about how and why they represent their alma mater in their communities.
SMU alumni are invited to lend a hand to student volunteers participating in the University’s Alternative Breaks (AB) program, March 6-12. Mustangs can support student teams in a variety of ways, from providing evening meals and snacks to sharing tips on budget-friendly activities in your city.
Tricia Linderman ’91, Matt Samler ’04 and Sandy Speegle Nobles ’75 are among the alumni who have shared their insights and expertise with current SMU students through the SMU Connection externship program, a partnership of the Office of Alumni Relations and Engagement and the Hegi Family Career Development Center. Samler says the volunteer experience allowed him “to give back to SMU in a more personal way and help a student in the process.”
