To help build uncommon loyalty among its alumni, the BYU Alumni Association offers myriad benefits, including an alumni discount card, a monthly electronic newsletter, free e-mail forwarding, a BYU ring, and much more.
“Part of our responsibility, as indicated in our mission statement, is to provide services and benefits,” says J. Michael Busenbark, ’72, executive director of the BYU Alumni Association. “This is expected from alumni associations across the country.”
All alumni, defined as those who received at least 24 credits of college education at BYU, qualify for the alumni membership card. The card offers specials and discounts at various places around campus and the local area, including Campus Craft and Floral, the Skyroom Restaurant, the Harris Fine Arts Center ticket office, Seven Peaks Water Park, and Trafalga Family Fun Center.
Alumni can extend their BYU experience by joining an alumni regional chapter or other group of alumni, such as the Single Alumni Association, the Management Society, or the Cougar Club.
To stay connected with BYU, alumni can sign up for MyBYU News, a customizable monthly electronic newsletter filled with news, calendars, and information about BYU services.
The Alumni Association also offers every alum a free byu.net e-mail address, which can be forwarded to any active e-mail account so users will never have to notify friends of yet another new e-mail address.
A BYU ring is available to those with 60 or more credit hours as well as to graduate students who have completed half their courses. The design features Karl Maeser’s “circle of honor,” a Y, and a reminder to “go forth to serve.”
