Getting Involved

Alumni Ambassador Network

Did you have a great experience at ESF and love talking about it? You would be a great asset to our Alumni Ambassador Network! We are looking for alumni who would like the opportunity to share their love and knowledge of ESF with potential future students.

As ESF’s reputation as a leading research university grows, so does the need to have representation at local high school fairs or college nights throughout the country.

While our Admissions Officers attend many of these events, there are many that we just do not have the staff to accommodate. We are looking for those who would be able to assist us in filling the gaps.

As an alumni representative for the College, you would participate in a “training session” with an Admissions Officer (on-campus, over the phone, or on-line). These sessions will provide you with current information about the College so that you are comfortable in your new role, while ensuring that the message we are sending to potential students is consistent and concise. We do not expect you to have all of the answers, but providing the student with an opportunity to speak with an alum—especially one from their hometown—is a very powerful tool.

Alumni can also play an important role in a potential student’s final decision to attend ESF. Once a student has been accepted, personal contact from alumni may help solidify their decision to become an ESF student. A simple phone call or e-mail from someone who has already gone through the experience can make all the difference in the world!

Join our growing network today!

ESF Connections

Join our growing network of alumni who share their academic and professional experience with our current ESF students. 

As an ESF Connections participant, you will enhance our student’s undergraduate experience and prepare them to launch their own professional careers. Your connection with the students will assist with career exploration, and your advice will aid in the development of their professional persona.  

As part of the program, we also hope to provide the students with some real-world experience. If you are able to provide a student with an externship, internship opportunity, or simply advice via an informational interview, please consider doing so; the experience will prove beneficial for everyone involved.  The ESF students will have an opportunity to explore a number of career opportunities available to them upon graduation and you will have the opportunity to influence the next generation of students entering the work force. 

Class Leaders

The Alumni Office is always looking to increase attendance at our events. The best way for us to do this is to get alumni involved in the planning of these events.

If you are interested in becoming a contact person for your class, please notify the alumni office.

The one comment that I usually hear at class reunions is "I had a great time, but I wish more people from my class would have been here." We attempt to do as much as possible to notify alumni of events that are on campus, or in their own area. However, nothing can replace the letter or phone call from a classmate that urges them to attend. I know most of you have busy schedules, but being a class leader is not a large time commitment. All we ask is that if you are planning to attend an event, contact friends and classmates and encourage their participation.

ESF Alumni Association Board of Directors

The ESF Alumni Board represents the interest of all alumni in matters that pertain to the Association as well as the College.

The Board needs volunteers from a range of classes in order to best represent the interests of the alumni population.

The position is held for two years. In order to serve on the Alumni Board, you must be a member in good standing: either a life member or a current dues payer. If you are interested in running for election to the Board, please contact the alumni office at alumni@esf.edu. The next election will be held in the Summer of 2016.
