Essex Alumni Color

The Essex County College Alumni Affairs Office is back after a brief hiatus!
We are deeply committed to supporting Essex County College and its mission, as well as scheduling events and workshops for the College Alumni.
Members of the Alumni Association represent over 45 years of college history from the many programs and degrees offered at Essex. Our alumni family can be found in any professional arena throughout the world.

The main goals of the Alumni Association are:

  • to establish and strengthen the bond between Essex County College and the Alumni,
  • to provide a forum for college Alumni to come together an exchange ideas and professional expertise,
  • to organize fundraising events to help support the Alumni Association, the institution, and students who are in search of scholarships.
