Upcoming EVENTS for SCSU alumni

 Alumni Networks are being established in Connecticut (CT wine tasting tour) and throughout the United States in areas where we have large concentrations of alumni.  These networks are being designed to help alumni make connections, both socially and professionally and stay connected with Southern.  We will need your help in administering them.  Each network will have a chairperson and a core group of volunteers to plan events as well as set and accomplish goals of the group.  If you would like to help, please contact Michelle Johnston via email or phone at 203-392-6500.  See below for a list of network events currently being planned.
