Learn more on the Alumni Affairs web page.

5 As a Methodist University alum, you can give one Greatest Gift Scholarship (GGS) each year to a full-time incoming freshman or transfer student. The GGS award ranges from $125 up to $1,000 a year for four years.

GGS applications must be received by the Office of Development and Alumni Affairs by August 1 for fall admission, and by January 2 for spring admission.

Your GGS is a wonderful way for you to share your Methodist University experience with others, so please take advantage of it. All it costs you is 15 minutes of your time to fill out the form!

6 As an MU alum, you have on-campus access to Davis Memorial Library and all of its resources.

7 The Methodist University Career Services Office is available to you for life. If you visit Career Services on the MU website, you will find a special area for alumni where you can upload your resume, search for opportunities, and track your job search. As an employer, you may also use the website and Career Services to hire Methodist interns and graduates. Visit methodistuniversity to register and learn more.

8 As an alum, you will receive the Methodist University quarterly magazine, MU Today, which will keep you up-to-date on alumni and campus events. When you find that first job, get engaged, or have children, we invite you to submit a Class Note for publication in the magazine to keep your classmates current on all your news. If you are not receiving the magazine please call us at (910) 630-7200.

9 The Office of Alumni Affairs sponsors a number of special alumni events throughout the year, including Homecoming, a golf weekend, the Alumni/Ministers Luncheon at the N.C. Conference of the United Methodist Church Annual Conference in June, and others. We also coordinate alumni participation in service opportunities with your alma mater, including career mentoring of other alumni and MU students, serving as host families to international students, and Monarch Movers.
