Through the use of social networking tools, Saddleback College’s Foundation is working to take a different approach than in the past to reunite alumni.
With approximately 540,000 members of Saddleback’s Alumni Association and no coordinator, the organization is currently inactive.
A newly renovated alumni website is expected to be launched in mid February, including a Group page on Facebook. New features will be introduced to allow alumni to reconnect, interact, blog, form groups or clubs, and exchange resumes, through one central network.
According to Director of Public Information and Marketing Jennie McCue, Saddleback may possibly be the first community college to go in this direction to contact and communicate with alumni.
