The Alumni Office wants to make it easy for you to connect with classmates and the university. Consequently, a variety of communication tools are available to you.

Social Networks

Hundreds of alumni have discovered the advantages of connecting with classmates and the university through such online networks as Facebook and Twitter. In addition to maintaining or rebuilding relationships with individual friends, you can become a fan of the Rochester University pages on Facebook or Twitter to view news information from the university. Be sure to visit the university Facebook page often since not all posts appear on your news feed. Special Facebook groups also have been developed for alumni of various decades.
