The Young Alumni Board (YAB) is a group of recent graduates who meet twice a year and is comprised of approximately 30 members from a range of business majors. The board strives to create a strong connection between the college and its alumni and to develop a network of mutually beneficial relationships for alumni, students, and faculty. Applications for the board are accepted each spring and applicants have to be within five years of graduation. Terms are for five years. As stated in the By-Laws, members are expected to attend (in person or by phone) two board meetings per calendar year and pledge a financial commitment to the college.  Applications are taken for vacancies each spring. 

Primary activities of the board include a fall workshop on campus for students to learn more about different career paths. In addition, the board manages two mentor programs for current students. One pairs current students with mentors based on the major/career path while the second program focuses on connecting students interning in key cities over the summer with mentors in that same city.
