The purpose of the Converse Alumni Association is to connect alumni to Converse and to each other, to provide valued services to members of the Association, and to support the mission of the College.
Members of the Alumni Association Board are asked to provide ongoing support for Converse College, to communicate the College’s vision, encourage connection among the alumni network, and to increase the visibility and promote the successes of Converse alumni. The Alumni Board is charged with supporting the goals of the Office of Alumni Relations set forth by the Director of Alumni Relations and Advisory Boards within Institutional Advancement.
The Office of Alumni Relations plays a pivotal role in the transition from student to post-graduate alumni status and member of the Converse Alumni Association. The Association hosts an Alumni Welcome tent on Freshmen Move-In Day, remains connected through participation in campus events, and celebrates their final days as a student with the Thomas Family Senior Dinner, an annual event for graduating Seniors held each May prior to Commencement.
Alumni Relations provides an array of programs and services for both undergraduate and graduate alumni. These programs and events are designed to serve alumni by keeping them in touch with each other and Converse. Post graduation we host Annual Reunions, alumni events across the country, send out the monthly View From the Tower e-newsletter and annual Your Connection alumni newsletter to keep our alumni network connected.
