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.

Saturday, September 17, 2016
Southern Connecticut State University Campus and various New Haven locations

Each year, Southern students join together to complete service projects or volunteer their time in the local community.

On September 17, 2016, hundreds of Southern students, clubs and organizations will volunteer for local organizations, agencies, and other locations in need of assistance at the 10th Annual Ron Herron Day of Service.

For the second year we would like alumni all around the United States (and abroad!) to join in the SCSU Global Big Event. If you live locally and would like to join one of the student crews in a service project, the students would love for you to join them. If you do not live locally, we ask that you choose a location for your day of volunteering in your area. Our goal is to have hundreds SCSU alumni around the world volunteer on September 17th. If you send us photos or videos, we will compile them and post them on our website.

We will be sending SCSU Global Big Event t-shirts to all participants prior to the event and ask that you wear it on the day of the Big Event. Please email (see below) by September 1st (international alumni, by August 20th), so that you will receive your t-shirt in time.  Please email Michelle Johnston with your name, the organization for which you would like to volunteer, your address and your men's t-shirt size.
