Upcoming EVENTS for SCSU alumni



SCSU Alumni Networks

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.

Family Event and Network Kick-Off!

Friday, August 5, 2016
5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. (Game at 6:30 p.m.)
New Britain Stadium
230 John Karbonic Way
New Britain, CT

We are delighted to be forming a Hartford County Alumni Network and are kicking it off with an evening at New Britain Stadium to watch New Britain Bees baseball.

The SCSU Alumni Association is creating opportunities for its alumni to network and make valuable connections. Bring your family, a friend, and a handful of business cards to share when you join us.
Admission to this fun-filled evening includes a ticket to the game in a luxury suite where you will dine on hearty appetizers, dinner and desert. New Britain's post-game fireworks will be the perfect ending to a celebratory night for us!

If you are bringing the family, the stadium offers a carousel and rock-climbing wall. You and/or your children may use the "Fun Zone" in the Stadium for a $5.00 fee, prior to and during the ballgame.
With such a large number of alumni in Hartford County, we expect an excellent turnout! Register online early because seating is limited. Click Here. The cost is $25.00 for adults and $20.00 for children ages 12 and under. Parking at stadium is $5.

A baseball game is a great way to entertain the whole family while you get to know your fellow alumni. We very much look forward to seeing you on Friday, August 5th.  Batter up!
