Recent Alumni Network (RAN)

What is RAN?

The Recent Alumni Network (RAN), representing graduates of the last decade (classes of 2013 – 2023), leads the charge in developing, planning, promoting and delivering quality programs designed to engage recent graduates in the Montclair State University community. The Committee focuses on programs reaching the current graduating class as they transition to alumni, addressing the special interests and needs of the first years following commencement and providing opportunities for networking, community service, cultural and professional development activities.
