The Alumni Relations Office exists to perpetuate and enhance the lifelong relationship between the university and its graduates.
Avenues to involve graduates and current students with CMU in a productive and positive manner are continually developed. Alumni are encouraged to return to campus and participate in traditional campus activities such as Homecoming and Alumni Reunion Weekend. Additionally, we encourage CMU alumni to get involved in their local Alumni Association chapters and clubs.
The Alumni Office helps foster a sense of spirit and pride in Central Michigan University students through the Student Alumni Association. The association was established to create opportuni- ties for both alumni and students to build relationships and assist with the growth and development of CMU.
The Alumni Relations Office publishes Centralight and the Ma- roon and Gold Review, sources of campus and alumni news to communicate with graduates of CMU.
CMU encourages alumni to enjoy an ongoing relationship with the university and to remain active with their alma mater. In rec- ognition of this lifelong relationship, Central Michigan University has dedicated the Carlin Alumni House on campus to welcome its 172,000 graduates.
