Welcome to the Holyoke Community College Alumni Association! As an Alum of HCC, you continue to be an important part of our college community. We offer a variety of services to our graduates, including opportunities to stay informed about college events, participate in numerous activities for alumni, contribute to scholarships for future students, and keep in touch with former classmates, faculty, and staff.

The Alumni Association allows you to stay connected! Long after they've left, Holyoke Community College's alumni continue to play an important role at HCC. From cheering on the Cougars at sports events to contributing time and creativity to the Alumni Association, to making gifts that enable others to fulfill their aspirations, they inspire us and help bring our mission to life.

The Office of Alumni Relations strives to maintain a vibrant alumni association for the more than 29,000 alumni of Holyoke Community College. Working closely with the Alumni Council, the Alumni Association:

  • provides opportunities for professional and social interactions among alumni
  • sponsors programs that promote alumni involvement with HCC and surrounding communities
  • expands alumni career mentoring and internship opportunities for students
  • invites financial support from alumni to further the college's mission

Membership in the Alumni Association is granted to all graduates of HCC, as well as to all former students who have completed nine or more credits at the college.
