There are many programs of interest to retired alumni, and many opportunities to get involved!

Hudson-Mohawk Retirees Group

If you are retired and live in the Troy area, you are welcome to participate. The group tours six sites of interest around the Capital District each year, three in the spring and three in the fall, and holds a planning meeting each year in February or March. A campus speaker and one campus point of interest is usually included each year. The day also includes "Dutch treat" lunch. If you're interested, contact us at or (518) 276-6205 with your name and mailing address. You may also contact us if you're interested in starting up a retirees group in your own local area!

Reunion & Homecoming

Visit the Capital District during fall, its finest time of year, experience a bustling campus alive with students and faculty, and enjoy football, a Back-to-Class program, social events, and traditional class Reunion activites. Reunion & Homecoming will celebrate five-year milestone Reunions and affinity group and Greek gatherings, but everyone, regardless of class year, is invited to join the fun.
