GOLD Phin Alumni Network Graduates Of the Last Decade
Jacksonville 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.
According to the GOLD Phin Committee, these are the top five reasons to get involved with the GOLD Phin Alumni Network:
- Professional Networking: Network with recent JU grads in the Jacksonville business community.
- Connection & Friendship: Connect and build personal friendships with alumni that you might not have known while in school.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

GOLD Phin Committee
Members of the GOLD Phin Committee plan and lead key GOLD Phin events throughout the year (including a Homecoming event), provide valuable feedback to University leadership and the Alumni Office, and serve as ambassadors for their alma mater.
GOLD Phin Society
GOLD Phins have the opportunity to be recognized for staying connected and giving back to their University by joining the GOLD Phin Society. This giving circle requires GOLD Phins to give either their class year per month (i.e. $20.20) OR $250+ per year. (Graduates who choose to increase their monthly gift to $42 per month by their tenth year will be upgraded into Order of the Dolphin.) Members also receive free admission to all GOLD Phin Network events in Jacksonville!

Scott Amos Recent Alumnus of Distinction Award
The Scott Amos Recent Alumnus of Distinction Award is bestowed upon a GOLD Phin who represents what it means to be an exceptional Dolphin. Named after JU’s Randall Scott Amos ’01/’02, who passed away on October 28, 2006, this award recognizes recent graduates who truly make a difference in their community, their profession, and at JU.
GOLD Phins from Dolphin Clubs around the United States always know the best local spots for happy hour! Every year we call upon GOLD Phins to plan toast parties to celebrate JU's birthday during Global Toast!
