The Alumni Association’s web portal, zPatriots.com, has received a face-lift with a redesign of the site’s top-level page. Launched in May, the site was created in conjunction with zUniversity.com, and provides users with the latest services available on the Internet, as well as networking opportunities and connections with George Mason.

zPatriots.com offers alumni an opportunity to strengthen their connection to the university and support the Alumni Association. The site features links to the university’s home page and the latest news and information from its campuses. It also provides a powerful search engine, free e-mail and website hosting, career information, and e-commerce. Services available on the site include a free e-mail account, a forwarding e-mail service, and the convenience of having one centralized site to organize and conduct Internet business. In addition, zPatriots.com will give back up to 50 percent of the net proceeds generated on the site through online shopping.

The new alumni center feature, a community-building tool, is already enhancing communication and outreach for the various chapters. Alumni with similar interests can easily form online communities to network with one another, plan events, hold discussion forums, and keep in touch.
