Special benefits online
In July 2008, the University of Adelaide launched its new online community Adelaide onLION. This interactive, social and professional networking facility enables alumni to connect with graduates, students and staff all within a secure, private online environment. With membership already over 7000 strong, the community continues to grow each day. As a member you can:
- Reconnect with friends or staff
- Network socially and professionally by creating or joining interest groups
- Access exclusive alumni privileges
- Access mentors and a career centre
The inspiration behind the name is the Bonython Hall lion, an icon of the University's tradition and 134-year heritage. Together with the name Adelaide onLION, the lion graphic is a unique identifying symbol, giving the community a distinctive look and instant familiarity. This symbol has also been captured on the new Alumni Membership Card sent to graduates through the post in October 2008. Current students and staff are able to use their official University Card to access alumni benefits; former students and staff members are eligible for an Alumni Membership Card. If you have not yet received your card please contact Development and Alumni at +61 8 8303 5800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another exciting program launched in mid 2008 is our Privileges Package. The new membership card gives alumni exclusive access to a wide range of benefits and services. These privileges fall under the following categories:
- Entertainment and tourism
- Education and development
- Food and wine
- Health and wellbeing
- Information and events
Each month the University will be promoting a specific privilege or special offer through its new electronic newsletter, The Roar, in Adelaide onLION and on the alumni page in the University's monthly magazine Adelaidean.
If you do not have access to the internet and would like further information on these privileges please contact Jen Clark at +61 8 8303 7194.
Get online, or on the phone, and start accessing your privileges today!
