Alumni Relations Landing Page
This is an unprecedented time for the world and our community, and we need your help! We are asking Montclair State alumni and friends to come together to make an impact for our students. Now, more than ever, many of our students are relying on our support through the Montclair State Student Emergency Fund to continue their education as we weather this crisis together.
Visit the alumni online community to tap into the Montclair State alumni network — a powerful group of more than 130,000 fellow Red Hawks in virtually every profession, across all fifty states, and in more than 75 countries worldwide.
Congratulations to our newest class of distinguished alumni and friends for 2020. Join us as we celebrate these distinguished honorees who have been selected based on personal accomplishments, professional achievements, community service involvement and support of the mission of Montclair State University.

Leonard Blessing ’50, ’51 MA
When Leonard Blessing attended Montclair State on the G.I. Bill after serving in the Air Force during World War II, the campus boasted 800 students and three buildings. Now, the Veterans housing that he and his wife Frances lived in is long gone and the campus is completely transformed, but Blessing isn’t nostalgic.
