Am I an alum yet?
Your senior year is a great time to start figuring out what it means to be an alum, and to connect with your classmates a few more times before graduation!
The staff in Alumni Relations and Annual Giving Programs are here to help you achieve both of those goals. We recruit seniors to serve as volunteers on our Senior Team--a group dedicated to providing opportunities for classmates to connect, providing information on what it means to be an alum, and educating their peers on the importance of giving back to Hamline.
Recruited in the spring of their junior year, members of the Senior Team are interested in providing activities that bring together the senior class as well as provide an outlet to give back to Hamline. These activities include a Senior Reception, Senior Picnic, Senior Class Gift, and other events.
For this year's Senior Class Legacy, the Class of 2013 voted to support the Opportunity Scholarship Fund – where 100% of donations go directly to financial aid impacting more than 90% of students on campus today. Learn more by clicking on the Philanthropy Committee link below.
The Senior Team is divided into two committees to help carry out its mission of celebrating seniors’ final year at Hamline.
Contact Emily McAdam

Sarah Kirchner Sheldon '06
