Welcome Charter Oak State College Alumni, Friends & Donors!

Students proceed to the graduation ceremony

The Board of Directors of the Alumni Association support Charter Oak's educational and service goals; and provide professional and social opportunities for members and alumni in general.

We are eager to involve our out-of-state alumni. The Board meets approximately 5 times a year. Subcommittees are established to assist with scholarship review, social/network planning, event planning, nominating, etc.

Alumni may serve as ambassadors to the College in their work/social communities or attend corporate and college fairs, in communities close to their home. We also have sponsored receptions for prospective students/alumni in different geographic areas.

We keep our alumni up to date with Alumni News: Connections.

To stay informed, please update your contact information with the College.
