UNCG's Office of Alumni Affairs works to foster alumni interest in and loyalty to the University by providing programs and activities which involve alumni with UNCG. The Office serves as the University's central point of contact for alumni and coordinates alumni involvement in admissions programs, homecoming, career networking, and, with the Alumni Association, develops programs and activities that lead current students to involvement as alumni.
Described as "a link, actual and sentimental, with the beginnings" of the University, the Alumni House stands on the site of Guilford Hall, one of the four original buildings on campus. Completed in 1937 at a cost of nearly $160,000, the colonnaded structure follows the architectural style of Homewood, the Charles Carroll mansion on the campus of Johns Hopkins University.
The Alumni House provides rooms for receptions, parties, and meetings for the University community and Association members. It also houses offices of the Division of University Advancement and the offices of the Alumni Association.
Organized in 1893
and incorporated in 1909 to promote education, the association works
to advance the interests of UNCG and encourage cooperation of alumni
in the work of the University. Annual and Life memberships are available
to alumni and friends.
