Alumni/ae Center

The Alumni/ae Center (pictured above) is located across the street from the College’s main entrance, and 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.

Collaboration with CDO

CDO hosts a variety of events each semester and also participates in the annual Fall Recruiting Consortium, a prestigious recruiting event where seniors from top liberal arts colleges interview for full-time positions starting after graduation. If you would like to be involved in CDO's lineup of events, please contact our office. We are always looking for new ways to collaborate with alumni/ae for specific career panels, workshops, mentoring opportunities, networking events, and job/internship opportunities. We welcome your ideas and encourage you to contact us.
