12 Alumni Association Officers and Alumni Council


The Alumni Relations Office is the primary communication link between the College and its alumni, enabling them to maintain an ongoing relationship with each other. Some of the office's programs and activities include Alumni Weekend, national and international alumni gatherings, and alumni travel. The Alumni Office facilitates online engagement with alumni and manages alumni volunteers. They also hire students for general office work and to help at on-campus alumni events.

The Alumni Office works closely with the Career Services Office to facilitate networking between students and alumni and among alumni, to take advantage of the invaluable experience represented among the alumni. The Alumni Office also helps officers of the senior class and alumni groups plan special events.

The Alumni Office gives staff support to the Alumni Association, which was founded in 1882, and to the Alumni Council, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The Alumni Office also gives staff support to regional alumni and parent groups, called Connections, in various cities, worldwide. There are 20,168 alumni: 10,026 men, 10,028 women, and 5 unreported, with 2,580 married to each other, giving substance to the College's traditional appellation, "Quaker matchbox." The College defines an alumnus/a as anyone who has completed one semester.
