Message from the President

I am profoundly honored by the opportunity to serve as the President of our Alumni Association for the next two years.  As I greet you for the first time as the Alumni Board President, there are a million things going through my head:  What impact and legacy do I want to leave on La Salle as President of the Alumni Association?  Most importantly, how do I build upon our plans to drive greater engagement from alumni to build bigger circles and a community of tighter connections?

The only way to lead a successful Alumni Association is to engage your help– the 56,000+ strong alumni of La Salle.  We want to ENTICE you with all the great events and experiences taking place on campus and beyond, REMIND you of your glory days as you reminisce your time as a student and ENGAGE you with the students, faculty, Christian Brothers and volunteers that make up our LaSallian Family.  We need you to be successful.  We need you to perpetuate the pride that sits deep in your heart.  We need you as role models to the Class of 2019 – our newest alumni – and to be the compass and guide that ensures future Explorers are Never Lost.

As you chart your course of engagement, start with these simple activities that inspire your pride and build our community

  • Talk It Up–Share your La Salle experience with prospective students, parents and fellow alums!  Be a La Salle Alumni Ambassador!
  • Explore It AllAttend alumni events back at 20th and Olney or in your area through regional programs!
  • Get Involved: Sign up for the Explorer to Explorer Mentor Program, attend our new alumni career series “Owning Your Career”, participate in service opportunities and more.

The best way to stay connected is to be informed of all the alumni events at La Salle through website and social media.  Follow La Salle Alumni on the major channels (Facebook or Alumni Website) or stay connected through me or any other Board Members.  We promise to promote your successes and ensure you are aware and included in every event.  Moreover, we welcome your feedback and guidance as we plan our engagement strategy for the years ahead.

Thank you in advance for your support as we build Bigger Circles, Tighter Connections, Greater Engagement.

Mike Hallowell, ‘86
President, La Salle University Alumni Association
