Giving back to my local community is something that I’ve valued since my time on campus, in the Bradley Three Year Business Honors program. As an alumnus, I also have come to value the strength of the SNHU network. When you combine service and an interconnected group of students, alumni, faculty, and staff around the world, the SNHU community has the power to make a positive impact in the areas that we live and work. That’s why I jumped at the opportunity to lead a Global Days of Service site last year in Los Angeles, and I invite you to join the movement with me this April.
There are three ways to get involved:
Visit the Alumni, Family & Friends website to learn more about this cause that’s near and dear to my heart. I hope you’ll join me and #ServeWithSNHU this April!
In the meantime, discover other ways to stay engaged with the SNHU community throughout the next few months below. And if you need some inspiration, learn more about another SNHU volunteer, Luis Cabrera '16. Penmen are making a difference every day!

Global Days of Service | April 2017
We are excited to share that Global Days of Service will be happening again this April. In 2017, we will celebrate SNHU’s 85th anniversary and hope to host at least 85 different projects. The map is filling up with 2017 sites; see if there's one in your area, start one of your own, or share your story.
In its inaugural year, we saw 469 volunteers provide 2,134 hours of assistance at 53 sites around the country (and the Bahamas!). Help us make an even bigger impact in 2017! RSVP to the Facebook event to stay up-to-date on the movement.

Virginia Alternative Break
A group of students will be traveling from Manchester, NH to Pulaski, VA during the week of March 12 for an Alternative Break trip working with Beans and Rice, an organization that aims to improve the economic well-being of low-to-moderate income families. We are looking to host an SNHU Community dinner while they are in town to allow local alumni and current students to meet up and also provide trip participants a broader perspective on the opportunities and challenges facing the local area. Interested in participating? Please contact Sara Telfer, Associate Director of Alumni Engagement, for more information.
Accepted Students Day - Volunteers needed! Saturday, March 25 & Saturday, April 8 | 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | SNHU (2500 North River Road, Manchester, NH)
We hope to have a few alumni join us on campus for each session to connect with parents of perspective students. Alumni will be there to answer questions, share stories, and talk through their time on campus and careers with parents during this time frame. This opportunity is really meant to provide a casual opportunity to connect. Contact Sara Telfer for more information.
Tennessee Service Learning Trip
Professor Chris Matthews will be traveling with a group of on campus students from to Memphis, TN for a class experience during the week of June 18. Details are still firming up, but there may be an opportunity for a networking reception and a service project while they are in town. If you would like more information as details become available, please contact Sara Telfer.
Two Ways to Mentor SNHU Students
SNHU is working with MentorNet, a national, not-for-profit organization that facilitates high-quality, virtual mentoring relationships specifically for students in STEM programs. We're seeking mentors to spend 15-20 minutes per week with their mentees over a four-month engagement. If you're interested in helping STEM students, visit the MentorNet website to create your profile.
Not in a STEM field? No problem! Join the SNHU Career Advisory Network, a members-only, self-service directory that connects Mentors with Mentees looking for career advice. Create your profile on the Alumni, Family & Friends website to be added to this growing directory. Your guidance as a career coach will help SNHU students achieve career success!
