2014 Young Alumni Board

Terry’s Young Alumni Board is comprised of 60 graduates from across the country who are 35 years old or younger. Founded in 2007, the board is charged with outreach and engagement to Terry’s young alumni community. The board’s mission is to develop initiatives that link students to alumni, foster a culture of giving, and support the college’s goal of excellence in education.

Initiatives

Second Century Club

As Terry College celebrates more than 100 years as a business school, the Second Century Club recognizes emerging philanthropists who earned their bachelors degree fewer than 12 years ago. These young alumni make a meaningful annual gift of at least $250 and are setting the standard for alumni of the next century.

Mentor Program

The goal of the Mentor Program is to bring together students and alumni for an exchange of information on education, professionalism, aspirations and ideas. These relationships provide learning experiences for students outside the classroom. The mentoring program allows alumni to give back in a meaningful way and offer advice and feedback to current students.

Regional Networks

The Terry College’s Regional Alumni Networks keep our “long-distance dawgs” connected to the college and updated on major initiatives. As more graduates move away from Georgia after graduation, the alumni networks keep them connected from afar.

Terry Talks

The purpose of Terry Talks is to connect younger alumni with alumni that have experienced successful careers in different areas of expertise in an intimate setting. These events serve to develop our younger alumni and connect them with mentors in their professions. The events are limited to approximately 15 attendees to encourage an interactive conversation among participants and hosts.

Business Learning Community Brick Campaign

As part of the Building Terry campaign and specifically in support of the college’s facility needs, the board initiated a Business Learning Community Brick Campaign. Your purchase of a brick or paver to celebrate milestones, honor valued people, or be recognized among your peers as we prepare for this historic move, helps the college build Terry one brick at a time.
