The Office of Alumni Relations has added a new online directory for the use of all College alumni. Users can access information about their classmates and others who shared similar interests and activities. The directory encourages alumni to reconnect and communicate.
“The directory also allows users to easily update their contact information and submit classnotes,” says Adrian Aldrich ’02, director of alumni relations.
The directory required three years to implement, and numerous alumni inquired about the former directory after it was removed for the redevelopment process, Aldrich says. Within three weeks of “going live,” 700 alumni had logged in and accessed information.
The directory is housed at northcentralcollege.edu/alumni. In a mailing sent earlier this fall, all alumni received a unique username and password. Once logged in, users can create a new password and/or access privacy options, if desired. For assistance accessing the site, contact Bonnie Beetz ’06 Kniss at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We’re not trying to compete with Facebook but instead provide an additional social media resource that benefits our alumni and makes it easier for them to stay connected with North Central,” adds Aldrich.
