Alumni Extras is an innovative new members’ club offering your alumni the sort of benefits typically associated with student discount schemes.
How can this help universities and colleges?
Offering Alumni Extras membership is a simple way to bring significant off-campus benefits to alumni, boosting participation. In addition, we’ll provide universities and colleges with the latest GDPR-compliant contact data for their alumni who join the club. And, both these benefits come at no cost to universities and colleges!

The Man In The Arena
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
From Theodore Roosevelt’s Citizenship in a Republic speech delivered at the Sorbonne in Paris on 23 April 1910
