BGA treasures its many dedicated alumni volunteers. They are the unsung heroes who help behind the scenes, coordinating events on campus, hosting receptions in their homes, making calls to classmates to solicit financial support, and much, much more.
Below are just a few of the ways you can help your alma mater, your former peers, and your future fellow alumni. If one (or more) piques your interest – or you have an idea of your own – please reach out to Claudia Stetter, Advancement & Alumni Engagement Officer (615-567-8493).
