Montclair State in Your Neighborhood

Posted in: Alumni News and Events

NJ Devils

With more than 125,000 alumni living in all 50 states and worldwide, the Office of Alumni Relations at Montclair State University hosts events across the country to give alumni a chance to connect and network with others in their neighborhood. You already have one thing in common: Montclair State! It’s all about connections, and your connection to Montclair State University lasts as lifetime. As part of our ongoing initiative to build and strengthen the alumni network, Montclair State engagement opportunities are planned on campus and in regions.

Gatherings have been held in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Boston, Miami, West Palm Beach, and in multiple locations in New Jersey including the Jersey Shore, Clifton, Jersey City, Morristown and Hoboken.

Most recently, alumni gathered at Smithfield Hall in New York City on December 6. The networking event was a great opportunity for graduates to come together and build their network, meet fellow graduates and enjoy an evening out in NYC.

Recent alumni from the MBA program attended the event in addition to alumni looking to break into new industries in New York City. Graduates of the 1970’s were in attendance, with alumni as recent as 2017 as well. Many attendees came out for their first-ever alumni event and were happy to have Montclair State represented in New York City.

Coming up in February is our annual Montclair State Alumni Night with the NJ Devils. Join fellow Montclair State graduates for an alumni gathering on Saturday, February 3, at the Prudential Center. Enjoy an exclusive pre-game reception beginning at 5:30 p.m. followed by the game, where you’ll watch from a great seat location in the lower level, as the New Jersey Devils take on the Pittsburgh Penguins at 7:00 p.m. After the game, the group will have the opportunity to take a photo around the Devils logo at center ice.

“The annual alumni Devils game combines my love for hockey and MSU! The pre-game reception is a great way to mingle with fellow Red Hawks/Devils fans!  My sister and I really enjoyed our time at Montclair State University, and especially enjoy all of the alumni events they offer,” says Jennifer Casselli LoRusso ’09. “We think it’s great that Montclair State gives so much back to its graduates, and now I also love sharing all the fun events with my husband, Kevin, who has definitely become an honorary Red Hawk!”
