What is BAN?

The Business Alumni Network is for all alumni who are part of the business industry, whether you are a recent graduate or someone with significant experience. We are made up of good, dedicated people, who are proud of our careers, education and the University of St. Francis community.



BAN began in 2003 when a few undergraduate and graduated business alumni gathered under the tutelage of Bill Dow (retired assistant professor of business administration), Frank Wyrostek (associate professor of finance) and Dr. Michael LaRocco (retired Dean of the College of Business and Health Administration) in order to create a “St. Francis connection.”


Why Join?

This network provides beneficial networking opportunities, social events and fosters relationships between students and alumni. The group assists alumni looking for jobs, changing careers, hiring employees or just looking to reconnect with other alumni. By creating this network, a variety of backgrounds, experiences and talents are made available as a resource to others.



BAN has 4-5 meetings a year on Saturday mornings at 8:30 a.m. A light breakfast is served at 8 a.m. You may participate via conference call at (888) 204-5987, access code 3281760.
