It’s all Greek to me! (Actually, it’s Latin.)

Defining alumni (Definitions courtesy of Dictionary.com):

alumnus – A male graduate or former student of a school, college, or university.
alumna – A woman graduate or former student of a school, college, or university.
alumni – Plural form of alumnus and also includes alumnae.
alumnae – Plural form of alumna.

How does Simpson define who is an alum? Each college or university defines alumnus/a in a different way. At Simpson, an alumnus/a is anyone who has completed 32 credit hours at Simpson (or has a sophomore class status).

As a Simpson alum, you are automatically a member of the Alumni Association! There are no dues or fees and you have access to all of our alumni events and programming.
