The Office of Alumni Relations begins working with students as freshmen, sponsoring events to increase their awareness of the Association and of their responsibilities as future alumni. After graduation, the Office of Alumni Relations serves as their link to Converse, keeping them informed and involved with Converse, and recognizing them for their accomplishments.
Our alumni are a highly engaged, vibrant community of friends who span the globe, yet sustain lifelong relationships with one another and with their alma mater. The energy and enthusiasm of Converse graduates are evident as the momentum of our Alumni Association continues to build; making new connections, growing a stronger network, and hitting new milestones at every turn.
Because of your efforts in communicating with Converse and with each other, our alumni network remains strong and united. We encourage you to explore your options for reconnecting, rediscovering, and returning home to Converse; consider joining us at an upcoming alumni event, like Reunion.
Events on campus and in your area are the perfect opportunity to be a part of the Converse story and to continue lifelong friendships with your amazing Converse classmates.
