The Puzzle: Pinpointing Historic Student Athletes on LinkedIn

Universities often find it challenging when trying to reconnect with their historic student athletes, especially on platforms like LinkedIn. The reason? These standout individuals, more often than not, don't prominently showcase their athletic backgrounds on their profiles.

The LiveAlumni Solution

Here's the exciting part: We have an innovative solution for this challenge!

Instead of spending countless hours navigating the vast maze of LinkedIn, institutions have a straightforward and efficient solution. You can identify these athletes internally through their unique IDs. Once this list is compiled, our in-house reporting experts step in, ready to assist.

By integrating these unique internal IDs on the LiveAlumni platform, we can swiftly generate a comprehensive report within LiveAlumni based on precise matches with the data that we have captured for your alumni. In this way, you can explore where your athletes are today - looking at their current employment information and any further education information that that they may have received.

Historic student athletes resonate with the heartbeats of the institutions they represented. Reigniting these bonds sparks powerful nostalgia and reinforces their deep connection to their alma mater.

3. Strengthening Alumni Relations

Reinvigorating these relationships breathes life into the alumni community, fostering lasting ties and an active network.

4. Enhanced Fundraising Efforts

Many of these former athletes have scaled heights post-graduation, making them potential key contributors to fundraising initiatives.
