All alumni, employees—both former and current, and friends of the college are invited to attend CSCC’s Alumni and Friends Celebration presented by The Alumni Community of Cleveland State. The Alumni Community of Cleveland State is the  newly formed organization established with a mission to Connect, Engage, and Celebrate our alumni within the wider community of employees and friends of the college. 

“We are really excited about our 4th Annual Alumni and Friends Celebration,” said Cindy Dawson, coordinator of Development and Alumni Relations. “What better way to connect, engage and celebrate than to have a party? This fun evening will be the launch of our new alumni program, The Alumni Community of Cleveland State. You will meet the new Alumni Council members and hear our vision for the future of this program.

“Cleveland State greatly appreciates First Tennessee Foundation who is once again serving as the sponsor for this year's event. Their continued support to the college and community is greatly appreciated.” 

Whether an alumni of the college, a community or business member who supports the college and believes in its mission or one of the college's past or current employees, the public is welcome to attend the Alumni and Friends Celebration. Although there is no cost to attend the event, it is asked to RSVP by Oct. 31 to aid the college in final preparations.
