Hood alumni automatically become members of the association and are entitled to participate in various activities and enjoy special benefits. You will be invited to alumni events, with mini-seminars on topics of current interest, career seminars and other special interests. Even if you live far away and cannot often attend events or use the campus resources, there are many ways you can stay active in the life of the College.
All Hood alumni receive a free subscription to the Hood Magazine. The magazine's Class News section provides the latest information about your classmates. Feature stories and profiles keep you informed about faculty members, administrators, students and other alumni.
The College hosts Reunion Weekend each year. While all alumni are invited to attend each year, classes are honored every five years. Social activities, class dinners, athletic events, information forums and other programs are scheduled.
