Biographical/historical note

Alumni Relations is the unit at NC State University that officially interacts with graduates of the university through programs and services. This unit was formerly named Alumni Affairs, and is now known as the Alumni Association.

The Alumni Association was established in 1895, six years after the first classes were held at North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts (now North Carolina State University). C. D. Francks was the first president of the Alumni Association.

The 1986-1987 narrative and pictorial histories of the university were published under the auspices of the Alumni Association. In September 2006 the Alumni Association moved into the Dorothy and Roy Park Alumni Center, built on the southern shore of Centennial Campus' Lake Raleigh. Additional information can be found on the Alumni Association website.
