About the Loyal Raven Program

A program for Benedictine College’s alumni and friends who are deeply involved in the college community and are proud to wear “red” on their sleeves. Loyal Ravens are our best advocates! This program recognizes their dedication, passion and commitment to Benedictine College. Being a Loyal Raven is all about pride, involvement, feeling a connection and proudly wearing the Raven on your sleeve.

Becoming a Loyal Raven is easy … just complete four steps each year to be eligible – Verify/update your contact info, attend an event or volunteer, give back, and advocate for the college.


Stay Informed

Verify/update your contact information

Keep your contact information up-to-date via your online my.benedictine.edu account. By keeping your email address, phone number, and mailing address updated you will stay connected to the college, fellow alumni, faculty and students.

By registering online you will receive the following:

  • College announcements and emails
  • Receive the bi-weekly Benedictine College Fly-by
  • All Loyal Ravens will receive the Spirit of Giving and the Raven Review magazines
  • Have a place to reconnect with former classmates through class notes
  • Have a professional network through LinkedIn with other alumni
  • Invitations to events in your area
