GOLD Phin Alumni Network Graduates Of the Last Decade

GOLD Phin Society LogoJacksonville University alumni who have graduated within the last ten years are part of the GOLD (Graduates Of the Last Decade) Phin Alumni Network. The GOLD Phin Alumni Network focuses on providing unique opportunities for recent grads to connect with their alma mater, build personal connections with fellow alumni, and expand their professional network within their community.

Get Involved

According to the GOLD Phin Committee, these are the top five reasons to get involved with the GOLD Phin Alumni Network:

  1. Professional Networking: Network with recent JU grads in the Jacksonville business community.
  2. Connection & Friendship: Connect and build personal friendships with alumni that you might not have known while in school.
  3. Career Development: The GOLD Phin Alumni Network partners with the JU Career Resource Center to provide professional portraits, resume review, and career planning and development opportunities to recent grads.
  4. Service & Philanthropy: GOLD Phins give back and make a difference for current Dolphins and the Jacksonville community through philanthropic events and an Annual Giving Challenge.
  5. Dolphins for Life: GOLD Phins value supporting their alma mater as ambassadors of the University for life.

You can serve in a community leadership position by applying to join the GOLD Phin Committee.
