Dear Alumni and Friends,

As an alumna myself, I know Santa Monica College is a transformative place. You all know about the journey through this academy of excellence that we know and love as SMC. Whether you came here to take one class, complete a certificate program, transfer, or get your Associates degree, you are an SMC Alum. You share an experience that is unique to SMC, and for many of us an experience that strengthened us in ways that empower us to give back to those that follow.

Your Presence Matters! You make up this spectacular community, and your continued active engagement through the SMC Alumni Network is the fuel that powers that network each and every day. We are on our way to realizing a vision to develop a world class global alumni association to provide support, resources, access and opportunities for our current students and our alumni. Scroll down to Meet the Young Alumni Council. Join us at VIP Welcome Day to greet parents and welcome our future alumni, reflect on your time here as you read the Future Alumni Focus and check out our Alumni Spotlight.

This SMC Alumni Channel newsletter is our way of reaching out to you. We care where you are, how you are and what you're doing. Click the Stay Connected link at the bottom of this page and let us know! Catch up on past releases of the newsletter in our archive. Enjoy this newsletter? Like it! Tweet it! Share it!
As always, Proud to be SMC!
