Honest Alumni builds alumni networking sites that give your current student body a means for contacting alumni with questions regarding their college experience. After registering, each alumni is generated a bio that features information such as their university of matriculation, major, and collegiate activities. This bio is featured in various locations on the site that allows students to easily find an alumni who can answer their questions.
Students have the ability to search for alumni and universities through a variety of search tools. Alumni and universities profiles are listed by location, cost, and major. So whether a students knows they want to talk to an alumni who went to University of Michigan or they want to just talk to an alumni who went to school in Michigan, we have them covered.
Honest Alumni connects the realms of alumni advancement to college counseling. Alumni advancement staff can use Honest Alumni to keep track of alumni and monitor their progress through college and into the workforce. Our services support college counseling staff by supplementing and preserving the knowledge they dispense annually.
Each Honest Alumni site is specific to your school meaning only alumni and students from your institution will have access to the site. Your Honest Alumni site is fully customizable. Simply let us know areas of the site you would like removed or added; we will work with you to develop a site your institution will love.
If you're ready to start the development process, we are eager to begin working with you! If you want to know a little more about the process of bringing Honest Alumni into your institution, we are here to answer all your questions.

Types of Connections
Each Honest Alumni site features every university that an alumni from your institution has attended. The focal point of university pages are the alumni. However, the page also features Frequently Asked Questions about the university, U.S. News data, and location information.
A student's major could be the difference between loving and hating a university. Honest Alumni lists your alumni network according to their major so students can ask questions about a major in general or for guidance of navigation a department at a particular university.
Honest Alumni creates a custom Google Map with every alumni university plotted. This allows students to discover schools in a particular region and make connections with alumni who are in their same region.
Activities outside of the classroom are almost as important as the curriculum inside the classroom. Each alumni bio includes "tags." These tags are an opportunitty for alumni to discuss how they spend their free time and can give the student ideas of opportunities at the university. From A Capella groups to intramural sports, we want students to know of all the opportunities available at their potential university.
Universities are listed by tuition cost so students can contact alumni with questions about paying for college at specific tuition levels. Universities are listed according to both in and out of state tuition.
Beyond the Basics
With Beyond the Application (BTA), Honest Alumni strives to have a repository of knowledge beyond those typically included in the application. This section of the websites presents alumni who have had unique college experiences that we believe need to be shared. Previous BTA sections have included: Greek Life, ROTC and the Military, Performing Arts, and Recruited Athletes.
