What do we offer?
We’re here for you – to help you connect and to keep you updated on University happenings. Just like our alumni base – now at 117,000 and counting – we’re continually changing and growing to meet the needs of alumni, students, friends and the Binghamton University community. If you are a graduate of the University, you are a member of the Alumni Association; it's free.
Here are some of the benefits we provide:
It is our secure virtual community - only for Binghamton University alumni. B-connected lets you update your personal profile, and search for alumni.
• submit a Class Note and read updates your classmates have posted
• upload a profile picture and photo album
• instantly see a list of alumni living in your geographic area
• create and share contact lists
• manage subscriptions to e-mail bulletins and online alumni newsletters
You can support the University by making a gift through B-connected.
To help you develop professionally and connect with other members of the University community, we sponsor two groups on LinkedIn. The Alumni Association Professional Network group is a forum for alumni-to-alumni and student-to-alumni networking. If you'd like to expand your network or serve as a resource for current students needing advice, this group is for you. The Alumni Association Job Forum is the place to post jobs within your organization, and to see jobs posted by other alumni.
For years, the Alumni Association has offered a free e-mail forwarding service to all Binghamton University graduates. Because jobs and Internet service providers change over the years, there is value in having an e-mail address that remains constant.
We are working to provide an improved lifetime e-mail service to our alumni. While this process takes place, we will not be able to accept any new registrations for the current e-mail forwarding service. Please check back here in the fall to find out more about what we will offer. We appreciate your patience.
Published three times a year, the magazine keeps you connected with articles on campus culture, and stories about alumni, student and faculty achievements.
This online newsletter features stories about the University, profiles on alumni, campus happenings and information about alumni events.
