Each year a select group of alumni are honored at an awards ceremony held on campus in June. Criteria for selection includes, but is not limited to, career and civic accomplishments, a history of giving back to the community as well as active support of the University in any number of ways.
Let Us Know Where You Are!
We can’t honor you if we can’t find you! We know that the University of Bridgeport has alumni who have made significant contributions in so many professions. From professional accomplishments, to overcoming adversity, to contributions to your community—this is what distinguishes UB alumni.
Let Us Know What You’re Doing!
Our expanded and re-designed alumni magazine, “Knightlines,” is sent to more than 30,000 alumni, supporters, and friends. Keep the alumni office informed of your professional successes as well as your community activism. With your permission, we would love to share it in “Knightlines.” It’s a way of connecting with old friends, and providing inspiration to more recent graduates.
