CEOAS is a community of researchers, teachers, students and staff—past, present and future. Connect with what's going on at CEOAS, renew connections and extend your professional network.
We'd Like to Stay in Contact with You
Three times a year, we plan to send an e-newsletter to alumni, highlighting stories about students, researchers, other alumni, and upcoming events. We also will send out an annual print piece (~16 pages of stories). Certain degree programs, such as Marine Resource Management, offer an opt-in listserv of open job postings in the industry.
If you would like us to be able to find you, please fill out this Alumni Contact Form, which will be emailed to the Office of the Dean. Thank you.
