Welcome to the Hudson Mohawk Alumni Chapter
Hello Fellow RPI Alumni!
These are exciting times in the Hudson Mohawk Alumni Chapter. We have a new leadership team that is working hard to plan, organize, and execute successful alumni events just for YOU! We will be focusing on holding more events than ever before to appeal to alumni of all ages and interests, from networking and sporting events, to cultural and culinary events, to more technical and academic experiences.
Our goals include increasing alumni participation as a community, and also giving back to the Institute and the area. Feedback is important, so we want to hear from you, either directly, or through the various e-surveys we will be sending out throughout the year, such as the one below.
At the end of the survey please provide us with your contact information or additional comments. Also, let us know how you would like to get more involved with your Chapter and our events. Click here to be directed to the Hudson Mohawk Chapter survey at Survey Monkey.
Thank you for your interest, participation, and dedication to RPI.
Best regards, Jonathan Sefcik ‘05G, President
Jessica Sweeney ‘04, Officer

I am honored to be serving as President of the Hudson Mohawk Alumni Chapter. I grew up in this area, but moved away to Washington D.C. after graduating as an undergrad. Graduate school at RPI was one of the factors that brought me back to the area, and I haven’t looked back since.
I and the other officers are looking forward to building our chapter membership and communications. We will focus on holding more events than ever before to appeal to alumni of all ages and interests, from networking and sporting events, to cultural and culinary events, to more technical and academic experiences. Our goals include increasing alumni participation as a community, and also giving back to the Institute and the area. Don’t forget to check us out on the Hudson Mohawk Chapter Facebook page.
Feedback is important, so we want to hear from you, either directly, or through the various e-surveys we will be sending out throughout the year. Thank you for your interest, participation, and dedication to RPI.
