The Iona College Campus Quad

Parents and Alumni Recruitment Team

The PAIR Team provides Iona alumni and parents the opportunity to serve as ambassadors and assist in recruiting highly qualified students. PAIR Team members are unique by virtue of their experience as a student or parent and knowledge of the benefits accompanying an Iona College education. The PAIR Team is vital to Iona's success as key contributors to our efforts in maintaining the College's high academic standards.
