Huntsman Young Alumni Board
The Huntsman Young Alumni Board is all about connecting our most accomplished and dedicated young alumni to the Huntsman School and our current students. We want Young Alumni board members to feel good about giving back to the Huntsman School and the next generation of Huntsman Aggies. We understand you are in a demanding phase of life, so we are keeping the expectation for membership simple.
The HYAB will meet twice per year on the Logan campus, usually on a Friday. We ask that each board member commit to attending at least one meeting per year in person. While board meetings will be virtually accessible, meeting days will be supplemented with other activities and events designed to connect board members and students in meaningful ways.
Join the Huntsman Hundred
Jon M. Huntsman was a role model of philanthropic living. Throughout his life, he gave away over half of his wealth, totaling $1.5 billion. Mr. Huntsman has provided life-changing impact to thousands of Aggies through his generosity to the Huntsman School and Utah State University. The Huntsman Hundred is a group of committed alumni who follow Mr. Huntsman’s example of charitable giving, committing to give at least $100 each year in support of student scholarships at the Huntsman School. Together, we can ensure that more future Aggies have access to the Huntsman experience at an affordable price. As a member of the Young Alumni Board, we ask that you both a participate and serve as an ambassador for the Huntsman Hundred, recruiting others from your network to give each year.Make a Donation

3 - Recruit for Huntsman
In the past ten years, the Huntsman School of Business has increased nearly 300% in new freshmen enrolled directly to a business major, and these new freshmen have an average high school GPA of 3.8. We would like to continue this momentum and start involving our young alumni in the recruiting process. We have both in-person and virtual opportunities to meet prospective students and families, talk about your experience at Huntsman, and help them in their decision making. Whether it is open houses, home visits and/or hosting, emails, phone calls, or on-campus events, we would love to involve you in the undergraduate recruitment process as we help young people make decisions in this next big step of their lives!
