About the Alumni Association

Keeping T-Birds connected to the people and place that forever influenced their lives.

Are you one of the 30,000+ people who have taken at least one credit course at Casper College? Then you're part of a distinct group — a group who defined success for themselves and worked hard to reach it. Success isn't defined by just earning a degree at CC. As an alum, you know better than anyone.

Our mission and more about what we do

The Casper College Alumni Association promotes awareness and appreciation for Casper College, increases the ability to provide financial resources to Casper College and its greater community, improves connectivity with alumni and other stakeholders, and improves the Casper College campus environment.

The Casper College Alumni Association is a growing and vital part of the campus community. In 1989, the association was officially chartered and a constitution and bylaws was adopted. Currently, more than 20,000 names are on the college’s former student contact list. Twice each year, alumni receive an edition of Footprints, the alumni news magazine. The magazine is also available electronically via this website. Alumni have worked to establish an endowment fund for future projects and scholarships, and oversee several scholarships. Each year the annual Alumni and Friends banquet honors distinguished alumni and commitment to excellence recipients. In addition, the alumni board hosts an annual chili feed at Homecoming, hands out doughnuts on the first day of classes, sponsors a holiday reception for students and staff, and presents each graduate with a gift at commencement rehearsal. The Krampert Theatre Lobby was named the Alumni Lobby in recognition of a $100,000 gift from alumni and a plaque has been erected listing all donor names. Also, the alumni association played a significant role in the college’s 50th anniversary celebration spearheading the “Spirit of the Thunderbird” project, which resulted in the 15-foot tall Chris Navarro bronze on the front campus, which has become a symbol for the college.

Board of Directors

The Casper College Alumni Association Board of Directors consists of  up to 21 members and meets twice per year, the end of October and the end of April. Each member is assigned to one of nine standing committees to assist in the operation of the alumni association.
