Frequently Asked Questions
Every graduate of Bentley is automatically a member of the Alumni Association. That means you’re part of a network of nearly 65,000 alumni across the world. The Global Alumni Board, the overseeing body for the Alumni Association, includes leaders who represent the alumni community and serve as liaisons to the school.
Each year, GAB recognizes select Falcons for their outstanding commitment to Bentley and the world: The Harry C. Bentley Alumni Achievement Award honors graduates in a reunion year who reflect the tenets of Bentley University’s founder, and the Emerging Alumni Leader Award honors a graduating senior.
Falcons of the Last Decade is a special group within the Alumni Association for alumni who graduated within the last 10 years.
Falcon Weekend, held each year in the fall, combines Homecoming and Family Weekend activities, and all members of the Bentley community — alumni, parents, families and friends — are invited to attend. Save the date: October 30 to November 1, 2020.
