10 September 2008 - Massey alumni will be able to keep in touch with their old classmates, hear the latest University news and receive invitations to events in their area, all using a unique new online forum.

Alumni relations manager Leanne Fecser says the website is the first of its kind in the country and will be a helpful tool for former students and the wider University community.

"We hope that alumni will find this site helps in managing and growing their relationship with Massey and we ask that they take some time to explore the site and test out its capabilities," she says. "Many suggestions and requests from our members were taken into account when we built this site, so we encourage alumni to provide ongoing feedback."

Only registered users will have access to the online directory, with privacy controls able to be adjusted by the user. All of the information and services in the Online Alumni Community are password-protected and available only to registered users.

Some of the main features of the Online Alumni Directory include: My Profile: This feature lets users easily make updates to contact information, make information available for others to see and manage which e-communications are received from the University. Community Information: By visiting this section of the website, users can search an online directory of fellow classmates and alumni members, register for special events, access the CareerHub, and be part of the alumni mentoring programme. Chapter / Network Pages: Each regional chapter has its own page with up to date information about the chapter and events in its region. There is a discussion group available for each chapter region to share ideas. Colleges and Departments will have the opportunity to create their own networks within the alumni online community.

Scholarship Donations: Alumni can now donate to various University Scholarships online.
