Due to the snowstorm, the HCC campus will be closed on Wednesday, January 17. All day and evening activities are cancelled. The Bartley Center will also be closed. Stay safe!

Alumni Council

The Alumni Council is a group of approximately 25 volunteers who lead events and activities that bring HCC alumni together and connect them with the college and its students. They meet six times a year (three in the fall/three in the spring) on campus as the governing body of the Alumni Association. These meetings are open to anyone who wishes to participate.
