Welcome! Alumni Spotlight is an initiative to help keep alumni connected to our federated history community.  Alumni will be featured here, and in our e-newsletters.  Over time, we hope that this page will become a hub where history graduates can get in touch with old friends and classmates, share stories and memories, and connect on common interests. At the very least, it will be an excellent way to advertise your accomplishments! 

To learn more about our alumni and their experiences in our programs, visit their profiles by clicking on the links below.

To be featured, click here to complete the Undergraduate (Major/Minor) or Graduate (M.A./M.A.T.) questionnaire.
