Here is a long list of the many ways you can consider giving back!

Create a Caring Community: Find and reminisce with fellow grads or new or potential students to share your experience and help them feel welcome as we recruit new students into your program of study.

Mentor: Share what you’ve learned and offer to help guide a new student or grad.

Employ: Hire other grads like you from Northern to build your company and their career.

Share: Join a Program Advisory Committee to help guide what is needed in the field to keep our curriculum current and relevant.

Help: Take on a placement in your workplace so a student can meet the requirements of their curriculum.

Teach: Come back as a guest speaker or part-time instructor to share what you’ve learned while you’ve been out in the world.

Learn: Find out what new programs or partnerships we have created since you graduated so you can continue on to get a degree, while getting credit for what you’ve already taken in school while at Northern.

Visit: Our libraries have access to many more documents than a usual community resource centre. You can get career insights from Employment Services or get a workout in at the gym with your special alumni rate.

Finish: Are you nearly there? Do you need one more credit to finish your diploma or degree? Come back and have a conversation about finishing your education with us, no matter where you started.

Apply: Consider working at the College and share your expertise with us.

Donate: Give to an already-established award for students or create one of your very own.

Protect: Northern has an extremely large number of alumni who use our benefits packages for their insurance, which provides us with student award monies. Consider joining them in taking advantage of some of the lowest rates available.

Party: Come celebrate with us! We are always planning events that can involve our grads. We’d love you to be there – it makes it even more fun to have you there, hear about where you’ve been and what you’ve done. We’re proud of you and look forward to spending time together again.
