Greetings from the Utica College
National Alumni Council President, Rob Sherman '74
On behalf of the Utica College National Alumni Council (NAC), I would like to welcome you home to Utica College.
The National Alumni Council is the governance body of the Alumni Association which is 22,000+ strong. We are dedicated to supporting Utica College and our fellow alumni by giving our time, talent, and treasure.
We represent the College and the Alumni Association at events, and we host various activities during Homecoming Weekend and/or at regional gatherings in our hometowns. Our responsibilities also include maintaining, encouraging and building relationships between alumni and Utica College.
All alumni are automatically members of the Alumni Association. You can become an active member of the association by attending and participating in College sponsored events, hosting regional alumni events, recruiting prospective students, and/or mentoring students. There are numerous ways to become engaged. The association provides a forum for alumni to interact with old friends, and voice their opinions about the College.
I encourage you to remain engaged with the development and growth of the College. Visiting the website (www.utica.edu/alumni) will allow you to learn about news and information regarding UC. Participating in alumni events such as Homecoming Weekend or Spring Fling Weekend will help you reconnect with your alma mater and fellow alumni. Offering your time, talent, and experience to be a guest speaker in a class, whether you’re discussing your job/internship experience or giving advice to students, would also help strengthen the alumni connection with students. You may also make a financial contribution to the College, via a gift to the UC Annual Fund, which helps to further the development of the College.
I encourage all of you to become reacquainted and stay connected with your alma mater as well as other alumni. Don’t forget to join the UC Facebook page or our LinkedIn site to further connect with fellow alumni and stay up to-date with all the events happening at the College. There is strength in numbers, and the more alumni that participate in our College the stronger UC will become.
Remain Pioneer Proud,

"I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College." "As a returning adult student, I felt the program was perfect. The class size was small allowing for individual attention when I needed it. I always felt known and accepted as an individual, not just a number among many. The professors were encouraging and helpful in many areas, not just academics. They took a personal interest in us as people, not just students. When I had a difficult time, my professors gave me the extra little push that I needed to continue. I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College. Today I teach high school mathematics and also a course at HCCC. The education I received at Utica College has prepared me well for my position teaching the higher math courses in high school. Returning to college to obtain my Bachelor Degree in mathematics was the one of the best decision I ever made. Choosing Utica College made that decision even better."
