Attending university is an excellent way to gain new knowledge and become a more marketable job candidate. If you loved where you went to school, then it makes sense that you’d want to stay connected after you graduate.

There are a few ways you can go about staying in touch with your alma mater. Just because you’re no longer attending university doesn’t mean you can’t keep yourself informed of what’s going on around campus. You likely have a lot of good memories from your years at the school and going back and visiting will bring you a lot of joy and positive feelings.

Invest in Property

One way to stay connected to your university after you graduate is to invest in property on campus. A student property investment is an excellent way to bring in passive income and help out students who are looking for and need a place to live. The benefits of doing so are that these buildings will always be in demand and rent is guaranteed. Students may even become long-term tenants so that you don’t have to worry about turnover.

Teach or Volunteer

If you’re a teacher or professor, then consider teaching at your alma mater after you graduate. Otherwise, there are properly a lot of different volunteer opportunities to partake in during your free time. Choose a student group or activity you’re passionate about and see if they’re accepting or want any extra help. You may also want to look into mentoring or tutoring students who are looking for these types of services on campus. On the other hand, if you’re a business professional, then consider volunteering at the business school and sharing your knowledge and expertise.

Attend Sporting Events

If you’re into sports or played one while at university, then you might want to think about heading back to attend these events. Choose a few activities to check out each year and watch your school participate in a variety of sports. The athletes will appreciate you being in the stands and cheering them on. Gather your friends or family and make a weekend of it and spend some time walking around campus and checking out the new spots and old places you used to hang out.

Join the Alumni Association

The alumni association is always planning fun and engaging events for students and past graduates. Join the association so you can stay up to date with what’s happening around campus and at your university. You may also want to donate regularly to help support various initiatives that are going on around campus. There may also be local networking events you can attend in your area to meet new people and connect with old friends.


Graduating university is a significant milestone in your life. It’s no wonder you want to stay connected to your school and campus. These are just a few ways for how you can ensure you continue to have a relationship with your university and the people who you once went to school with and the newcomers.
