Northwestern State University’s Office of Alumni and Development is launching an initiative to support and promote businesses owned by NSU alumni. Businesses owners are invited to visit a web page to submit information about the business and products and services offered, including non-profits.
“This began as a way to help our business-owning alumni and support their entrepreneurial endeavors by letting the NSU community know who they are, where they are and what they have to offer,” said Danielle Antoon Cobb, director of Alumni Affairs. “We are also offering business owners the option to offer discounts to other NSU alumni.”
Cobb said a webpage has been created that invites business-owners to provide information about their business, along with graphics, logos and social media platforms.
Listings on the page do not represent an endorsement by the Alumni Association, nor will any financial support be provided by the Alumni Association. All businesses and listings are subject to review and posted at the discretion of the Alumni Association. See FAQ at end of page for more information.
The new business director could strengthen the NSU community by informing graduates of the businesses in their area and provide networking opportunities.
“It encourages alumni to support their fellow Demons in the cities where they live, work and shop, or through on-line interaction” she said.
