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,

"My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes and a range of fieldwork assignments. I remember how exciting it was to actually relate theory into practice." "My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes such as Anatomy and Physiology and Medicines and Pediatrics, which has been a great asset in working in a health care profession. Fieldwork hours with both healthy and hospitalized children including a wide range of ages and abilities were an invaluable experience. I remember how exciting it was during my internship when I was able to actually relate theory into practice."
