As the Director of Alumni Relations, I am pleased to serve our over 87,500 alumni in a variety of ways, from welcoming them back to campus with a variety of special events to cultivating future alumni -- our students.  In a combined effort between the Office of Alumni Relations and the Southern Connecticut State University Alumni Association, we are proud to bring comprehensive, relevant programming to our alumni.

If it has been some time since you've been on campus, we want you to know that the SCSU campus is your campus.  We serve as a virtual conduit for our alumni, by offering networking opportunities, both social and professional, family events, seminars and panels about the issues that matter most to you and of course, Homecoming.  We're here to lend special expertise to the social, economic, governmental, business and educational issues that impact you right here in Connecticut and the region.  Together, our faculty, students and alumni encourage and challenge each other to think in new ways and to approach difficult questions with creative solutions.

Take advantage of what Southern has to offer -- from academics and athletics to arts and culture.  The Office of Alumni Relations is here to welcome you.
