In June, Ridley launched a new online platform, the Ridley College Network, that allows alumni to reconnect with former classmates, fellow Old Ridleians and the school. Whether you’re a recent graduate or a Golden Tiger, here are 10 useful ways to use and benefit from this innovative new platform.
1. Update Your Profile
We want to know what you’ve been up to since graduating Ridley! Include a recent photo, short biography, university or college degree and career information.
2. Visit the Job Board
Search for your next career move or post an opening at your organization.
3. Share an Update
Have something interesting to share? Post an update or start a discussion! It’s the perfect place to start a conversation with someone new.
Use the search function in the Directory and reconnect with an old friend, housemate or teacher.
5. Discover Mentorship
Search the directory to find a mentor or list your profile as ‘willing to help’ so someone looking for a mentor can find you!
6. Join a Group
Visit the ‘Groups’ tab and join a group that interests you; such as ‘Graduates of the Last Decade’, ‘Friends of Rowing’ or one of the branches.
7. Check Out Upcoming Events
Visit the ‘Events’ tab and find out if a Ridley reception is coming your city, sign-up for a golf tournament, or learn about other special events.
8. Stay Up to Date with Social
Visit the ‘News’ tab and see Ridley’s official social media platforms in one place. Watch the latest video, see what we’re sharing on Instagram or read the latest blog post.
9. Upload Photos
Upload Photos from your Ridley experience so that your peers can share in your memories.
10. Download the Mobile App
Open your App Store (Google or Apple) and search for ‘Graduway’. When opened for the first time, you will be prompted to enter a code (1503282). Simply log in with your credentials and you’re all set to stay connected via your personal device!
Share the Ridley College Network to increase participation!
