Mercersburg offers more than an education: as a member of the greater alumni community, you have access to a lifetime of personal and professional connections. Along with current students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends, you are part of the Mercersburg Network.
Thanks to the breadth of the Mercersburg alumni network, I was able to connect with a fellow alum who is CEO of a major company in an industry of interest to my employer. He was extremely helpful and willing to arrange a sales conversation between his team and mine. My CEO was floored by my networking. I told him my blood is blue for Mercersburg!

Dr. Duke Hasson ’02 was so kind in allowing me to shadow him as I began medical school in California. I am so thankful to be a part of the Mercersburg community. I hope all the current students know how lucky they are because Mercersburg is such a special place and even more so knowing that once you are a part of the community, you always will be. Maybe after medical school I’ll have a Mercersburg alum shadowing me one day!

Regional event volunteers assist in choosing the date, location, and programming for Mercersburg’s off-campus events. They also contact fellow alumni and friends to encourage attendance at the events.
Alumni are encouraged to serve as experts for or mentors to students in a variety of academic pursuits. For example, all seniors are required to complete one of two academic capstone programs before they graduate—MAPS (Mercersburg’s Advanced Program for Global Studies) and Springboard. Alumni serve as mentors to MAPS students, offer their places of business for Springboard class tours, and serve on the panels that evaluate students’ year-end presentations.
