Create a One-Stop Shop: Integrate Private Alumni Site into Main Site
The majority of colleges and universities offer alumni an online community or private alumni site to access their profile information, class notes, alumni directory and transaction history (when applicable). The best and most effective alumni websites not only offer an online alumni community or platform, but integrate the private features and resources into the main alumni site, which is publicly accessible. Schools that integrate the public and private alumni sites create a one-stop shop for alumni to access all alumni-related features, including the private alumni profile.
