Welcome to the NMSU Alumni Association!

The Alumni Association traces its beginning to May 24, 1898, at a meeting of graduates from the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, as the University was then known. That meeting of alumni - determined to connect graduates with their Alma Mater - has definitely grown. Like NMSU, the NMSU Alumni Association has grown with substantial help from dedicated alumni, students and friends of the University.

Together, we are discovering new ways to engage, educate and reconnect alumni to NMSU. Through the NMSU Alumni Association’s International Board of Directors (IBD) and Executive Council, alumni volunteers are working to enhance the institution for you and the future graduates who will join the ranks of more than 130,000 alumni and counting. That enhancement comes from countless efforts recruiting students, gathering alumni in their hometowns for events, sharing job opportunities with current students, mentoring young alumni and attending events sponsored by the NMSU Alumni Association.

Fortunately, enhancing the institution is not limited to our IBD and Executive Council members! Any and all alumni can build a relationship with the university, connect with other alumni and help grow NMSU Alumni Association outreach through more than 18 active chapters and a growing number of student delegates.

About the Office of Alumni Relations

The Office of Alumni Relations equips thousands of alumni and alumni chapters with the tools they need to connect with each other and reconnect with the University.

The primary responsibility of the NMSU Office of Alumni Relations is to be proactive in the support for both creating successful new chapters and groups, while fortifying and sustaining existing ones. With the help of the International Board of Directors for the NMSU Alumni Association, the Alumni Relations team provides the strategic vision, guidance and resource services to help each chapter or group reach its goals and potential – and stay connected to NMSU. Dozens of opportunities exist to help volunteer and give as well as programs and events that encourage networking, celebrating and mentoring. The office is supported and housed by the Office of University Advancement in Dove Hall.
