About Societies
Although the objectives of each alumni society may vary, common goals include:
  • Communicating with alumni and stimulating interest in the college;
  • Acting as an informal advisory board to the dean, faculty and staff to the college;
  • Fostering public and community support and providing a means for alumni cooperation to improve the college;
  • Honoring outstanding alumni, faculty and students;
  • Providing educational and professional programs and services to alumni and students;
  • Assisting collegiate fund-raising efforts; and
  • Helping to recruit prospective students and improve the student experience.

Alumni Association members automatically become members of their college's alumni society. Members may select additional societies at no charge by logging into the Association's Web site and updating your account. To become a new Alumni Association member, click on the link for your collegiate society below and click on a link in the "become a member" section. Your society code will automatically fill in.
