Two friends at Reunion 2015

For Our Alumni

There are so many ways to connect with the college and our 23,000 alumni.  Connect, give, volunteer, learn, mentor, keep up with class news, learn about regional programming, and much more.

Meet Our Alumni

The environment fosters lifelong friendships and sparks a deep and persistent desire to learn. Our alumni take all variety of paths in life. Some are prominent on the world scene and others contribute to society in equally important though less public ways. A liberal arts education prepares students for careers, volunteer activities, and individual interests and pursuits that are personally meaningful.

It’s not about what you have done since Amherst, but who you have become.
