"Alumni From Day One" is the motto of the Alumni Advisory Board (AAB). The AAB serves those who have been enrolled at Landmark College, whether for a semester, a year, or a degree program. “This group cares deeply for the College and most importantly, for the students,” said AAB member Brian Press ’95. 

Established in August 2007, the AAB provides counsel, advice, and recommendations to help the College remain strong for future generations of students. “The AAB has the special opportunity to get the word out about Landmark,” said Kerri Bennett-Silva ’97. “We can fundraise to sustain and grow important programs, mentor current students and alumni, and promote the ideal of giving back.”

“It is vital for alumni to stay connected with the College in any capacity they choose,” said Macho.  “We want to come up with a way to engage new alumni to help the College and its mission.”

Why should new alumni stay linked to Landmark College? “Because they are the future of the College,” said Vice-Chairperson Andrea Tolliver ’00. “New alums have fresh eyes and experiences. They contribute so many meaningful ideas, which helps Landmark College continue to flourish.” 

Landmark did so much for me as a student and as a person … It is important to give back to this valuable institution—Michael Macho '04, AAB Chairperson
