Living the call to learn, lead and serve

Our alumni are the best! Together, you have created an ever-growing, adaptive alumni community that promotes the common good around the globe. For many of you, that includes volunteering through UD community programs and events. Thank you!

Paul Boeckman ’82, ’86, mentor
Volunteering allows me to share 35 years of experience with those who might benefit by learning about my successes and failures.

Michela Buccini ’08, ’12, mentor and day10 committee member
I volunteer because it has been a fun way to give back to UD. Being a part of day10 and Reunion Weekend committees has been a great way to reconnect with old friends and continue to feel a part of the community I love so much.

Courtney Deutsch ’98, Reunion Weekend co-chair
Volunteering with UD keeps me in the know about things that are going on with the University and gives me the opportunity to personally connect with the staff, faculty, alumni and students who make it great.

Adam Hug ’03, alumni community leader
Once a Flyer, always a Flyer. Being a community leader has been very rewarding because alumni are amazing. At events, you’ll see people from 22 to 82 years old, and everyone bonds and supports each other. We are promoting the Flyer community and spreading the Marianist spirit.

John Nairus ’89, Alumni Awards committee member
UD played a significant role in who I am today — both personally and professionally. That is why I always do my best to say yes any time a new volunteer opportunity is offered.

Cindy Obring ’80, Alumni Awards committee member
I volunteer to give back to the institution that has given so much to me. Of course, I will never catch up because the more I volunteer, the more I receive from this great institution!

Tony Pascale ’63, Golden Flyers committee member
I want to give something back and stay connected to the University. I believe that a lot of what I have accomplished in my career and life can be directly attributable to my experiences and time at UD.

Khristian Santiago ’16, day10 committee member
I volunteer because it gives me the opportunity to give back to UD and work with other alumni to ensure the voices of younger alumni are heard.

Brittan Stegemiller ’13, ’14, alumni community leader
I enjoyed my time and all the opportunities at UD. I want to share that enjoyment with others!

Emily Spicer ’08, alumni community leader
I’m a Flyer for life! By volunteering, I’m continuing to grow, learn, have fun and meet new Flyer friends along the way. Flyer friends are the best :) The University gave me so much, and this is a way to give back.

Jennifer Weed ’95, alumni board member
I volunteer because being a part of the UD family isn’t limited to our time on campus. If I could repeat my four years at UD, I would without hesitation. And because I can’t, serving the UD community is the next best thing.

Jennifer Pollard ’85, alumni community leader
I serve to give back in the Marianist tradition of thinking of others before yourself. It brings a smile to my face, just like every time I see a picture of that beautiful, blue-domed chapel.
