Alumni Association

Over 10,000 former students of Rochester University are members of the Alumni Association. As a graduate of Michigan Christian College, Rochester College or Rochester University you automatically become a member of the Alumni Association. Traditional students who completed at least 36 credit hours (18 hours prior to 1997) at our institution are also considered part of the Alumni Association.

As an alum, you have the opportunity to invest in the future of Rochester University. Through five key areas (mentoring opportunities, leadership positions, ambassadorships, volunteer work, and fundraising initiatives) our alumni board seeks to collaborate with the university to serve our Alma Mater in the best ways possible. Contact Jen Porter at for more information about getting involved.
