Features

Find Your Community

Join an alumni club in your region, or an affinity network that matches your interests or background. No matter where you live, the alumni portal can connect you to others with similar interests and experiences!

News Feed

The news feed includes news and events from Purdue Alumni — and any groups that you follow.

Members at the PLUS level and above can post content that will then appear in their contacts’ news feeds.

Page Navigation

The left-hand navigation includes links to your news feed, member directory, mentorship opportunities, job postings, events, and communities.

On the right-hand side you’ll find recent job postings, new individuals who have joined the platform, as well as social media feeds featuring Purdue Alumni’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Groups

Members at the PLUS level or above can post to individual group pages. Comment, upload images, attach files, and tag others in posts — just as you would do on other social media platforms.

Events

PLUS level members can also post and share events. Posting an event is intuitive and allows you to create links to registration pages, or have an internal RSVP if it is a smaller event.

Mentoring

The mentorship feature is available to PLUS level members and above. When you create your account, you’ll have the option to volunteer as a mentor. Or, if you’re looking for a mentor, you can search for one by industry. The mentoring relationships are self-facilitated between mentor and mentee.
