Once you’re a captain, you’re a captain for life. Unlike other colleges, students from years past are not forgotten, but rather an integral cog in the mechanics of the Christopher Newport community.
As an alumni, you are entitled to a myriad of benefits from the university. Among these are discounts for on-campus facilities, such as renting the chapel for a wedding; selected discounts for the Ferguson Center’s many, many wonderful performances; access to the library and even a parking pass! Though, perhaps most importantly, you also have lifelong access to the Center for Career Planning this includes job searching, job applying, resume editing and much more!
In addition, alumni are also given the opportunity to give back to their community. You are able to help out your fellow alumni by working with the Center for Career Planning to give CNU alumni access to your company’s job postings. In addition, donating to Christopher Newport is a terrific way to ensure that the institution can continue the same level of excellence as it always has.
Alumni Weekend is a great place to get in contact with your fellow alumni and work with them to better network yourself! This is your opportunity to enjoy many of these benefits, though they are available year-round, but also be among your peers and learn of the new alumni benefits that are being expanded upon every year.
