Alumni Committee

About my position

As Alumni Officer, I'm here to help you connect and get career/life advice from people who have been in the exact same shoes as you. I would love to see you at Alumni Subcommittee events and collaborations with other societies and subcommittees. Our subcommittee is responsible for organising the annual alumni weekend, as well as other smaller networking and professional development events throughout the year.

How my position affects you

This position affects all students, because it aims to develop professional skills and professional interests in an honest and accessible way. Over the year, we will be working to maintain meaningful relationships with alumni while enhancing the development of our current students. St Andrews boasts a diverse global alumni network – we will work to ensure that these graduates stay connected with St Andrews and its unique sense of community. Join Saint Connect and come along to our events to start these connections.

About me

I’m in third year studying International Relations and Management. I’m from Michigan in the US. I love meeting new people and making new friends so I hope that I get to meet you! I am also involved in Enterprise Week and the Careers Centre running the work shadowing programme.

Groups I work with

As an Association Officer, I sit on both the SRC and SAF within Councils. I also I chair the Alumni Subcommittee. Follow the Alumni Subcommittee on Facebook for updates.
