Saint Ben’s Alumnae Relations Opportunities

Alumnae Board The Alumnae Board serves as the governing body of Saint Ben’s Alumnae Association. Elected members of the Alumnae Board are women who foster lifelong relationships with alumnae and other constituents.

Chapter and Affinity Groups Group involvement helps bring alumnae together to share experiences, promote connections and encourage Saint Ben’s visibility in area communities.

Young Alum Committee The CSB+SJU Young Alum Committee (YAC) is a group that provides programming and resources to Bennies and Johnnies who have been out of college for 10 years or less. The planning committee organizes several events and activities throughout the year, primarily in the Twin Cities area.

Bennie Mentor Program The mission of the Bennie Mentor Program is to foster an exchange of ideas, friendship and expertise between CSB alumnae – young and old. Alumnae are welcomed and encouraged to serve as both mentors and mentees for a nine-month commitment. New applications are accepted July 1-31.

Experience & Professional Development (XPD) Alums are an integral part of our XPD programming, like the SEAM Program (Student Exploration through Alum Mentorship) and posting internship and job opportunities. XPD also offers some great resources for alumnae.

Admission Volunteer Volunteer at events to serve as a career panelist or to staff a college fair booth. Serve as a resource and mentor for prospective and admitted students, or simply create a video highlighting your experiences and the value of a CSB+SJU education.

First-Year Care Package Program This program gives alumnae the chance to send a care package (referred to as “Bennietines”) to first-year students during the week of Valentine’s Day.
