Alumni Benefits

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 special alumni events including seminars, receptions, topics of current interest and other events. 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.

Hood Magazine

All Hood alumni receive a free subscription to the Hood Magazine. The magazine's class news section provides the latest information about your classmates. Featured stories and profiles keep you informed about faculty members, administrators, students and other alumni. 

Reunion Weekend

The College hosts Reunion Weekend each year. While all alumni are invited to attend each year, classes are honored every five years. Social activities, athletic events, information forums and other programs are scheduled. 

Career Contacts and Assistance 

The Center for Career Development and Experiential Education is an invaluable resource to all alumni seeking career advice.
