After graduation Bard alumni/ae often stay closely connected to Bard, and to the friends and professors they had in College. There is a strong bond between Bardians, whether they meet at a reunion on campus, or recognize a fellow alum on a crowded street by the telltale Bard sweatshirt. Bardians know that the College is a unique place that values not only the individual but also the world beyond the Annandale campus—that’s why we find alumni/ae making their mark in business, science, politics, the environment, and the arts. Alums take great pride in their alma mater and support Bard in any way they can, whether by recommending new students, making a gift to the College, or offering professional mentoring to current students and young alums.
Anne Cox Chambers Alumni/ae Center
The Alumni/ae Center, located across the street from the College’s main entrance, opened its doors in 2012. The newly constructed space gives alumni/ae a place to host small functions, gather informally, set up readings and exhibitions, and interact with faculty and students.
The Career Development Office encourages Bard alumni/ae to stay connected to CDO after they graduate. Bard Alumni/ae continue to have access to CDO's resources and are welcome to participate in our special events and workshops each semester. A network of hundreds of alums is available to Bardians at any stage of their careers.
