Students who fit this definition will have access to certain alumni-only features, such as alumni e-mail, the online alumni directory, and career services. Register for an account by visiting the Alumni Association website.
  • Junior Dinner off the Farm: Head off the Farm this Fall or Winter quarter with five to ten other juniors who share your interests for a casual, home-cooked meal whipped up by local alumni hosts. You’ll have the opportunity to select an alum host by major, field of interest or career. Each family-style gathering is located near campus and is free for students; transportation is free and arranged as needed.
