Franklin & Marshall College relies on its alumni and parents to help support both campus and regional alumni events. Contact one of the people below to learn about these and other ways in which you can serve as a volunteer for the College.
Every five years, your class will celebrate reunion on F&M's beautiful campus. Much planning is needed for such a worthwhile event to take place, and the Office of Alumni Programs depends on volunteers from each class to help to customize their celebration and raise reunion class gifts.
Homecoming is another opportunity for alumni volunteers to give a few hours of their time to assist the Alumni Programs office. Opportunities can range from helping to greet visiting alumni, providing directions to an event location, or handing out tickets to events. Contact the Executive Director of Alumni Relations & Annual Giving, , at 717-358-5800 for additional details.
Franklin & Marshall Alumni can be found worldwide! Anywhere there are concentrations of alumni, there can be alumni activity. Regional volunteers plan social and community events for alumni in areas that will provide opportunities to strengthen the F&M network through renewing friendships, learning about campus happenings, and being involved in the life of the College. If you think that you may be interested in volunteering your time to become a regional chapter leader or if you have an interest in helping your area, contact Associate Director of Alumni & Parent Relations, , at 717-358-4719.
The mission of the Franklin & Marshall Admission Network (FAN) is to expand and enhance our admission outreach and to supplement the recruiting efforts of our Admission Staff. The organization is led by a nine-member board comprised of alumni and parents of current and former students, and by a working group drawn from the College’s offices of Admission and Advancement. Leadership is provided by a board chairman, and by Daniel Lugo, Vice-President and Dean of Admission and Financial Aid. Please visit the FAN website for more information or contact Mary Manacher '81, Coordinator of FAN at .
