How do I join the Alumni Association? Once you graduate you are automatically an alumnus and member of the Alumni Association. Once a patriot, always a patriot! Just make sure you keep your contact information up-to-date with our online directory. If we don’t know how to contact you, we can’t tell you about events, activities, and benefits. How long can I use HireMason? Forever! Register before you graduate and you can access HireMason indefinitely for free.
