Connect with Students


Admissions-Alumni Partnership

The Office of Alumni Engagement has a long-established partnership with our Office of Admissions at Mary Baldwin University. Throughout the admissions recruitment process, there are many opportunities that alumni can become engaged in showing prospective and new students what the power of our Mary Baldwin family and alumni network looks like in tangible and meaningful ways.


Refer a Squirrel Program

Do you have a recommendation for a prospective MBU student? Take a moment to fill out this form and "Refer a Squirrel" to our admissions team. Students who are referred, apply, and are admitted to MBU will receive a $500 Alumni's Best & Brightest Scholarship. 

Prospective Student Eligibility:

Prospective students must be referred by a Mary Baldwin alumna/us (from any campus or program). This offer is good for online students enrolling all year and residential students enrolling in the fall. Students must be successfully admitted to the university and enroll at MBU to qualify.



Baldwin Recruitment/Retention
Alumni Volunteer Organization (BRAVO)

The Offices of Admissions, Student Engagement, and Alumni Engagement at MBU are excited to offer alumni the opportunity to contribute to the university's undergraduate student recruitment and retention efforts as volunteers through BRAVO. Now more than ever, personal connections and uplifting messages for our prospective and incoming #MBUfamily is so very important. 

Alumni have an opportunity to virtually connect with students in the 2020-2021 academic year through at least three (3) touch points. Participating alumni volunteers will craft personal outreach to students celebrating the following:

  1. BRAVO August Touchpoint: Welcome to the university! 
  2. BRAVO October Touchpoint: You completed your first six (6) weeks at MBU! 
  3. BRAVO April Touchpoint: You completed your first academic year at MBU!


The spring recruitment cycle will begin with a postcard writing campaign in February 2021. Alumni who are interested in volunteering may join the BRAVO program during either or both the spring and fall recruitment and retention volunteer opportunities.
