Alumni volunteers are an important component to Fuqua's reunion program. We invite you to learn more about opportunities available and get involved with your class committee.  Sign up today!

Why volunteer?

  • To reconnect with classmates.
  • To start, or continue, on a pathway to other volunteer opportunities at Fuqua.
  • To accomplish a worthy goal and make an impact at the school.
  • To develop or strengthen a relationship with Fuqua staff.
  • To live in the spirit Team Fuqua, even after graduation.

Reunion Volunteer Role

All volunteers will be asked to select and reach out to at least 10 of their classmates to reconnect them with Fuqua, find out what they are up to now, discuss reunion weekend, and encourage them to attend. If you're interested in being a reunion volunteer, sign up using our form and we'll be in touch!

Volunteers additionally will be asked to help:
