You may no longer be a student, but you will always be an Eagle! Joining the Alumni Associations will strengthen your longstanding relationship with the University and help the University fulfill its mission of preparing students academically and professionally to become leaders. Your participation in the Alumni Association is more important than you realize. College rankings use alumni participation as a key measure of a college’s impact and worth to its graduates. A strong college ranking increases the worth of your degree from NCCU. I invite you to join the Raleigh/Wake Alumni Association. You will learn about exciting new programs and activities, expand your network of professional contacts, and share your own achievements. Sincerely, Paul Bitting – pbitting@nccuraleigh
