Help Plan and/or Host an Alumni Happy Hour in Your City
The Alumni Office tries to visit as many cities across the country as fiscally possible; in efforts to engage alumni and connect past classmates to network, build new friendship and reminisce about all the great things you experienced from your time at Mercyhurst. We like to think that your experience doesn’t stop with graduation, and our office aims to foster that unending Laker connection.

Host a Dinner with 10 for Current and Prospective Students
Often times, prospective students that are in the middle of the college decision process welcome conversation from an alumna/alumnus to help decide which school would be the best to choose. Many times it takes conversation from current students experiencing the current academic and extracurricular programs to help a uncertain future Laker. It is through these conversations that the greatness of Mercyhurst and the top-notch Catholic liberal arts education can be showcased. Our office would like to coordinate these relationship and initiate the conversation. If you would like to host such a dinner, please fill out the form below to start the process.
Become a Class Agent
Tracking down and staying in contact with more than 16,000 alumni is one of our greatest challenges. As people move, disconnect phone numbers, change names and add family members; our job in updating our database becomes quite difficult. It is important for us to stay in contact with our graduates and family members to keep everyone updated on current events and the endless Mercyhurst opportunities provided to our alumni. We are always seeking Class Agents to help our office contact classmates to recruit attendance with Homecoming and Family Weekend, Reunion Weekend, Annual Fund participation and much more!
