Visit Reference & Resources for complimentary access to JSTOR, Mango Languages, and Project MUSE.


Volunteer to support students professionally or academically by updating your profile with areas of expertise and interest, as well as your connection to alumni affinity groups.

Students, faculty, staff, and friends of the College — including parents and families of students — can also access parts of the Online Community. Learn more about how to sign up for your account and what you can access.

When utilizing the Alumni Online Community, please be mindful of the following guidelines:
  • Using the community for any commercial activity is strictly prohibited.
  • Many of us have found that learning is promoted by dialogue in a spirit of inquiry, curiosity, and mutual respect. Please conduct yourself in that spirit when using the community.
  • The College reserves the right to remove people without notice from the community for inappropriate interactions.
