Alumni Connections, November 2010: Young Alumni Achievement Awards

Posted on 11/22/2010 11:05:56 AM

In November 2010, the IUP Alumni Association honored six recent graduates for their outstanding professional accomplishments.

The Young Alumni Achievement Awards program is sponsored by the IUP Ambassadors student alumni association, and it recognizes recent graduates as emerging leaders in their chosen professions. These outstanding graduates exemplify your alma mater’s deep tradition of educating and developing future leaders in diverse fields around the world. Learn more about the honorees, or recommend a recent graduate for future consideration.

While the Alumni Association offers programs and services for everyone, did you know the association offers programs specifically designed to assist our recent graduates? If you are a recent graduate, you may be interested in the following:

IUP Alumni Connections: Social networking is a great way to expand your professional network, stay in touch with friends, and stay connected to your alma mater. With IUP Alumni Connections, a free online community, you can create your own personal profile, access the IUP online alumni directory, learn about and register for networking events in your area, view the IUP alumni photo gallery, and stay connected with your friends. IUP Alumni Connections is connected to Facebook. Once you log in, you can use your Facebook login for future visits.

Regional Networking Events: If you are looking to expand your professional network, these events are the place to go. Meet IUP alumni who are business leaders in your area, and learn about opportunities for you to advance your career at upcoming events in your area.

Group Discount Insurance: The association offers discounts to alumni on auto, homeowners, and renters insurance through Liberty Mutual. In addition, short-term medical insurance is available to all alumni under the age of sixty-five through GradMed. This is great for when you switch employment, or for when you no longer qualify for coverage under your parents’ policy but have not yet been added to an employer’s policy. See more information on all alumni insurance services.

The IUP Alumni Association recognizes the importance of assisting recent graduates as they begin building your careers. Staying connected is easy! Simply update your e-mail address, and the IUP Alumni Association will keep you connected.

Again, I extend my sincere congratulations to our 2010 Young Alumni Award recipients.
