Northeast Catholic College alumni are a vital part of the college’s extended community across the country and across time. Alumni assist the college in carrying out its mission and continue to build up a vibrant community that includes alumni, current students, faculty, and staff. Though no longer residential students, they in turn benefit from the extended community, friendships sustained, and professional opportunities.
The college delights in welcoming alumni back to campus for special events. Each year, alumni join the community for orientation weekend, the Advent Lessons and Carols, the Sophomore Dinner and Winter Ball, the Paschal Triduum, and graduation. And of course, alumni often visit throughout the year.
The college’s office of alumni relations offers a more formal way for alumni to remain actively connected to their alma mater, assisting in its mission, and continuing to cultivate the community into which they entered as students.

The Office of Alumni Relations consists of the Alumni Relations Staff and the Alumni Board.
