I’m not interested in all of the mentoring options, but McDonogh Connect preselects them for me. Why?

One of the main benefits of McDonogh Connect is the mentoring feature. To ensure that we build a robust network of mentors, the buttons are pre-checked. However, it only takes a few seconds to uncheck them based on your preferences. You can check as many or as few as you like.

What are the benefits of logging in with LinkedIn or Facebook?

Logging in with LinkedIn or Facebook speeds up the login process. This option allows you to easily connect profiles you've already set up through the other social platforms. This also allows you to see what other alumni in your social networks are using our platform, as well as invite your fellow alumni to join.

I updated my information, but it's not appearing that way in my profile.

Each section on the ‘update your profile’ page has its own individual ‘update’ button. You must click this button for each section you update before clicking ‘I'm done updating’ when you're finished.

How do I sync up with my social media accounts so the information appears in my McDonogh Connect profile?

When logged into the platform, click on the small menu arrow next to your profile photo and select ‘settings’. Then select the ‘account’ tab and click ‘connect’ to sync your accounts.

What if I don't have a LinkedIn or Facebook account?

You can log in using an email address. If it is an email address we have on file, you will be automatically approved. If we don't have the updated contact information, your approval will be pending, and the alumni office will verify your information. You should receive approval notice within one business day.

I graduated from another school that uses a directory similar to McDonogh Connect. Can I access both directories with my sign on information?

Directory services offered by different institutions through Graduway (the company that partnered with McDonogh to create McDonogh Connect) are not merged together. The McDonogh Connect directory only contains McDonogh alumni and seniors. However, users can sign into each of their Graduway-created alumni directories using one ID and password via their social media accounts (Facebook and LinkedIn).
