Alumni

Once a Bulldog. Always a Bulldog.

We build relationships for life.

At Gardner-Webb, we are dedicated to serving our current and future alumni. Whether it’s information about Homecoming, opportunities through Career Development, keeping your peers updated on what you’re doing today, our team is here to help you stay connected to all things Gardner-Webb!

Current Alumni

From the moment you graduate, we work hard to nurture a life-long relationship between our university and you, our extraordinary alumni. We plan Homecoming, Regional Events, and support monthly Alumni Chapter Gatherings so that we can hear about what our alumni are doing as well as catch alumni up to speed on what is happening at the Webb!

Future Alumni (Current Students)

Throughout the year, we provide opportunities for our current students to participate in activities that promote philanthropy and school pride.

Philanthropy on the Fly

Our student philanthropy initiative (link to Philanthropy on the Fly page) gives students a chance to partner with Alumni Relations by investing in a project that will benefit others and will cost them only a small fraction of their time (60 seconds or so).

Student Alumni Association

Students may also seek membership in our Student Alumni Association, an organization open to all students.

Legacy Student Recognition

We have many students at GWU who come from a long line of family members who have made Gardner-Webb a family tradition. Special programming is offered to these students to recognize and celebrate them.

November Red Cross Blood Drive

Sponsored and staffed by our Legacy Students and the Honors Student Association, this is a great way for students and members of our community to make a lifesaving gift.
