The Alumni Association provides an opportunity for you to connect with classmates and support both the College and current students through scholarships and mentoring.
Ways to keep in touch with your fellow alumni include the Alumni Facebook Group, participating in special receptions at professional conferences, and attending College hosted events for students and alumni.
As the voice of 4,100 graduates, we encourage you to actively participate in the Alumni Association.
All alumni and past NECO residents are members of the Alumni Association.
