When is my reunion?
The 50th, 25th, 10th, 5th and 1st class reunions are held each April at Spring Carnival. Other class years or groups looking to coordinate a reunion or members of a reunion year interested in helping to plan the event should complete the Volunteer Interest Form, and a member of the CMUAA staff will contact them.
How do I connect with an Alumni Interest Network?
Interest Networks reconnect alumni with a common interest, identity or affinity with the university. Events and reunions for these groups are usually based on the anniversaries of the group's establishment and may occur at Spring Carnival or Homecoming. Visit the networks page to explore all CMU's Alumni Networks.
Alumni who would like to plan an event or reunion for an Alumni Interest Network should complete the Volunteer Interest Form, and a member of the CMUAA staff will contact you.
How can I join a regional or affinity network?
One of the most popular ways to reconnect with the university is through regional Alumni Networks. These geographic-based groups provide networking and socializing opportunities and send out regular e-communications. Your mailing address automatically associates you with the nearest regional network, if one exists. Explore the complete list of current CMU Alumni Networks.
