Alumni Involvement

Welcome, Westchester Community College Alumni!


For many, the pathway to success began here at WCC. Time and again, alumni have given credit to the transformative effect that Westchester Community College has had on their lives, and on every student who passes through its doors. We each have our own personal experience, whether it was the attention of an influential professor, the ear of an empathetic counselor, time in a nurturing environment to decide about the future, or being given an opportunity that you thought you would never have.

YOU, our alumni, are our legacy, and Westchester Community College’s success is reflected in your success. Together, we can continue to make the dreams of today’s students come true.


Will YOU answer Heimdall’s call?

The WCC Alumni Association is excited to launch its new Campaign for Heimdall.  Never before have we given the alumni the opportunity to support the College and its students in the areas you care about most!  The Campaign for Heimdall gives you choices in supporting the College’s broad divisions such as Technology. Humanities or Health Sciences; or more specific programs like Scholarships, Honors, Athletics and Student Services.

WHO was Heimdall?
Heimdall was a Norse God whose name means “one who illuminates the world.”  Westchester Community College has been called a shining beacon for all those who want an opportunity for a better life and understand that it begins with a sound education.  Heimdall blew his horn to call all Vikings to battle — and so we are calling you, our alumni, to action so that Westchester Community College can continue to “illuminate the world.”  Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution in support of the area that you care about most.

How you can answer the call:
