The Office of Alumni Affairs coordinates “Class Notes” in Eastern Magazine, and actively solicits alumni news.

The Eastern Connecticut State University Alumni Association is a nonprofit organization comprised of all 30,000 graduates of the University. Alumni who make financial contributions to the University are considered to be “Active Members” of the Alumni Association. Led by a volunteer Board of Directors, the Alumni Association is committed to supporting the initiatives of the University and meeting the changing and challenging needs of its alumni and the University, its current students, faculty, and support staff as well as University programs. The Alumni Association encourages alumni to show their pride in their Eastern education by supporting the University’s programs through tax-deductible donations to the ECSU Foundation’s Annual Fund. The Alumni Association also recognizes distinguished Eastern alumni and friends of the University through its “President’s Leadership Awards” program. The Alumni Association provides graduating seniors with a free copy of the university’s commencement DVD for those graduates who register.
