Alumni chapters are volunteer-driven organizations that reflect the pride of Saint Joseph’s alumni—no matter where they live. Through the activities of chapters, we are able to engage and connect with a higher number of alumni than the office of Alumni Relations and the Alumni Association Board could do through its individual efforts.
The Boston Chapter’s success came directly from the
volunteer work of our alumni in the Boston area. RJ Turner ’98, who is a
current member of the Alumni Association Board, took on the role as chair of
the Boston Chapter. Interested alums can contact Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org.

in their local communities. They also help alumni stay connected with their
alma mater by keeping them informed about major events at the College or by
providing the opportunity for alumni to share memories of their years at Saint
Joseph’s College. They can also serve as a resource for recent grads as well as
current students by offering mentorships, internships, and even career
opportunities through the bond we all share as being part of the Saint Joseph’s
All Saint Joseph’s College alumni are members of the Alumni
Association, a non-dues-paying organization. When alumni in a specific region
initiate a chapter, all alumni within that geographic area are considered members
of the chapter and are welcomed to attend all chapter events.
Launching One in Your
On the heels of such a successful launch of the College’s
first chapter, the Alumni Office is looking to expand the network of regional
chapters to serve all areas where alumni live. And where, exactly, do they
live? The Association’s reach includes all 50 states. (Yes, Alaska and Hawaii,
we’ve got you covered.) Whether you’re one of the 902 alumni living in Florida
or one of the 134 in Washington, there are plenty of grads in your state to
organize a regional chapter. Contact the Alumni Office to start the conversation
