The purpose of the Association is to develop and maintain a mutually beneficial relationship between Western Connecticut State University and its alumni by fostering a welcoming atmosphere for future and existing alumni; raising awareness through philanthropy and fundraising; and building lasting relationships among alumni, students, staff, and the greater Danbury community; and celebrating and honoring alumni. We offer trips and programs throughout the year and ask that alumni be a part of the university community.

Calendar of events

The Alumni Association page offers alumni and friends the opportunity to look up fellow classmates through our NetCommunity directory and see the accomplishments and life stories of alumni in our Class Notes. Class Notes publishes the highlights of your career, the awards you receive and the events you participate in that enhance your life. We also provide the names of the alumni we have lost and the reasons for celebrating: marriages and births.

Has life landed you around the corner, or on the other side of the globe? Have you embarked on family life or decided to start your own business? Let us know at and it will be added here and on the alumni Facebook page.



Whether you're in your mid 20s or your late 80s, we hope you will let us know what you're up to these days. And don't forget, you may wish to support the university and its mission by donating to the Annual Fund, joining our Met & Married program or attending one of our events.

We ask that you stay connected to WCSU!
