You can change the world right from your computer or smartphone!


USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO CONNECT TO CAUSES
“Heading online can be one of the easiest ways to make a difference or participate in actions around the country. Some actions are as easy as following a local nonprofit on Facebook to learn more about events in your area. You might take time out of your day to participate in a Twitter conversation using a trending hashtag that you care about. If you have resources, it is also easy to donate online to nonprofits doing great work! Online action may seem small at times, but small steps add up.” – Annie Thompson ’11, Social Media Lead & Digital Content Specialist at Simmons College 

CONNECT WITH FELLOW SIMMONS ALUMNAE/I
Simmons alumnae/i are all over the world! You can join one of our regional Facebook groups to make connections with alumnae/i in your area. You can also just take a minute to look up an old friend and reconnect on social media or through our alumnae/i directory!
SUBSCRIBE TO A LOCAL PAPER
Many local newspapers offer online subscriptions that allow you unlimited access to their content. Buying an online subscription not only helps connect you to local information, it supports the work of the journalists who cover the news in your community.
SIGN UP FOR AN EMAIL LIST
Most active nonprofits use email to regularly update their followers about key issues. You can also sign up to receive articles and news from a professional organization in your career field to keep up with the latest news and tips.
