Alumni Networking, Perks and More …
Truly some of the best times of a young adult’s life are college. But all good things must come to an end and what better way then becoming UNF alumni. There are many benefits that are associated with being a UNF graduate. First and foremost, you will have a bond for life with other Osprey graduates and the perks of that are immeasurable. I highly encourage graduating students to join the UNF Alumni Association. Networking with other alumni can be very powerful, whether it be in a job hunt, connections or just a common bond. Besides networking, there are a few benefits available to UNF graduates.

Alumni Chapters: Connect with fellow alumni that graduated from the same college or that share common interests. These chapters are more about promoting UNF in a business sense as opposed to a social setting.
