Alumni Relations

From the Director

Welcome to the Chowan University Alumni & Friends web page.  It is a pleasure to offer you this source of information for alumni happenings and other alumni-related matters. Here you can check on upcoming alumni events, Homecoming activities, and Alumni Council news. You can even find out how to get involved and/or make a donation.

Please stay in touch with us!  It is a constant challenge to keep our alumni records updated and accurate data is vital to our success.  We welcome you as a part of the Chowan Alumni family and we hope to see you back on campus soon! We hope that you will stay connected and involved with this ever-growing institution.

We encourage you to continue sharing your stories as change makers. Your experiences and accomplishments demonstrate the passion and mission of the Chowan family. Be sure to read about your fellow alumni who have been selected for the Chowan Gallery of Distinguished Alumni.

If you have questions or need more information about Chowan or any alumni happenings, please feel free to contact me at (252) 398-6436 or I look forward to seeing you at upcoming alumni happenings. 

Best regards,

Kay Thomas
Director of Alumni Relations
