Upcoming EVENTS for SCSU alumni

Events at a glance - Spring 2015


SCSU 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.  We hope to see you at one in your area!

Boston area alumni will meet at Boston's oldest tavern to kick of the Boston Area Alumni Network.  We plan to have an American history professor from Southern on hand to give us some insight to this very special location, the site where the Revolutionary War was planned! 

Established in 1714, this is a spot where Paul Revere held meetings with the other big-name Sons of Liberty:  Samuel Adams, John Adams, John Hancock, Daniel Webster, et al.  The Boston Tea Party was planned here and it's a commonly held belief that the plans for the invasion of Lexington and Concord were overheard in this pub, spurring Paul Revere's famous ride.

Please join us for a fantastic evening of networking and history!  $15 per person includes appetizers and fun, cash bar.  Click here to register.
