What Can You Do in 60 Minutes?

Alumni asked to give time to Longwood community

Alums who want to help can do so in the “1 Hour a Month” program of the Office of Alumni and Career Services. The ways they can contribute are numerous and varied:

  • Post internships and job openings via the Longwood Network or LinkedIn
  • Offer career advice to current students
  • Share news and photos on social media
  • Submit an update for the Class Notes section of Longwood magazine

And these are just a few examples.

Alumni can get started by going to www.longwood.edu/alumni. From there, they can select from a variety of activity “bundles” designated as taking 15 or 30 minutes to complete. The “1 Hour a Month” comprises 45 minutes of these activities plus submitting a report on the contributions, which counts for 15 minutes. The same activity bundle may be chosen multiple times in a one-month period.

“If you love Longwood and have always wondered how you can help, this is an easy way to do so. Who doesn’t have one hour a month?” said Parks Smith ’08, director of alumni relations.
