How do I find an alumna/us?

Whether or not you graduated this past May or years ago, chances are that you met some very important people during your time at MCLA. The Alumni Office offers a searchable directory by clicking here (Login is required!). If you have not yet created an account, you may do so by clicking here.

If the person that you are looking for was not found, please try searching by their maiden name—they may have been married since last you connected with them!

Who are Legacy Families?

The Legacy Family designation recognizes individuals who make a MCLA education part of their family tradition and encompass students or alumni who are related to a person who attended MCLA, North Adams State College, State Teachers College or North Adams Normal School. Generations of families have passed on the MCLA tradition, and we celebrate and honor this special affinity relationship. This designation is just one more way that we're strengthening the bond between the College, our alumni, and our students.
