The Annual Alumni Day of Service focuses on connecting alumni with students and allowing alumni to inspire students to excel in their professional areas by sharing their expertise and stories from B-CU and beyond. Many alumni serve as mentors to students as well as offer internships that will lead to gainful employment upon graduation for students. Alumni come back to campus to reconnect with their alma mater and see the positive progress and changes that have been made through increased and continued alumni giving.
