Get Involved

A few of the many ways our alumni and parents of alumni can continue to be involved in the Bentley community are outlined below. We look forward to connecting with you again soon!

Help Plan a Reunion or Special Alumni Event
Is your class celebrating a 10, 20, 30, or 40 year graduation anniversary? Do you have a knack for party planning? Are you friends with all of your Bentley classmates on Facebook? Bentley relies on alumni volunteers to help plan special reunion celebrations and other social gatherings. Let us know if you would like to help organize a class reunion or assist with a future larger alumni gathering. 

Host a Senior Intern
Have a friend or loved one who might be willing to mentor a Bentley Intern? We have identified Bentley parents, alumni, and friends of the community in various fields who will be willing to offer 10-30 hours a week of observational or internship experiences and/or informational interviews to our Bentley seniors. The projects and internships run from May to June (80 hours total, 5 hours a day, not including Fridays). If you are interested in providing an internship for our Bentley Seniors, or help them with practice interviews, please fill out this form. Email Molly Aaronson-Gelb with any questions.

Support the Annual Fund
Donating to the Bentley Annual Fund is one of the most significant ways alumni can make a difference at the school. Please visit the Support Bentley page for more information about alumni giving. Alumni leaders are also needed to reach out to classmates and encourage participation in Bentley's fundraising efforts.

Support College Counseling
The Bentley College Counseling office can always use volunteers to sit on an alumni college panel, meet with Bentley students during their college trips, and talk to students about their college experiences. If interested, please email Archie Douglas.

Speak at Town Hall Meetings
Interested in sharing your experiences in the “real world” with current Bentley students by leading a Town Hall? Email your ideas to cchecovich@bentleyschool.net.

Participate in Professional Networking
Join our Bentley Alumni Facebook group and LinkedIn group and post job and internship opportunities for other Bentley alumni. Start discussions about professional networking opportunities and offer your expertise and advice to younger alumni through the Facebook Alumni group feed and/or LinkedIn discussion feature. The Bentley Alumni Office will work with you to help circulate your posts to our community.
