ALUMNI PARTICIPATION

It’s as reliable as clockwork. You apply to Babcock, get in, get your degree, then a year or so after graduation, you get your an invitation to give back. It’s never a surprise, but when you’re in the process of repaying loans used for education, buying a house, or starting a family, the idea of giving can feel a bit overwhelming. We understand. But life after your degree doesn’t slow down, it only gets faster. However, you don’t have to give a huge lump sum of cash to have a big impact. Here are few little titbits that might change your mind about giving.

University Rankings

University ranking bodies like NUC and World Report and webometrics factor in overall Alumni Participation (that’s the percent of alumni who give to their alma mater) when they determine university rankings. Which means, even if you give only $5 or N1000 you’re making an impact as you are giving credence to your diploma.

2019 Fund

Your donations are part of a University-wide effort to provide a world-class education to students and give back to Babcock in a sustainable, holistic, and innovative manner. We hope that graduating classes present and future take this opportunity to reinforce the transformative role of education pioneered by the visionary leaders of Babcock

University.

Making A difference

The biggest benefit in giving back is that you’ll know that you are making a difference in the life of today’s Babcock University students. Your support will help students have the Babcock experience of their dreams.

Networking Opportunities

Whether you’re giving your time or money, giving back can open up opportunities to mix and mingle with other alumni making a difference in their perspective fields of expertise.

Volunteering and the gift of time

By offering your time, you’re helping to keep the BU legacy thriving long after graduation. When you offer to host an event, volunteer your expertise on a panel, or support us on campus you have the opportunity to make an impact in real time, and there’s no better feeling.

See? Even by giving a little, you can still have a huge impact on the future of BU. Now goout there and make us proud.

Proud to Belong!
