Welcome Class of 2024 to the Alumni Community

Congratulations, graduates, on reaching this significant milestone in your academic journey! We celebrate your remarkable achievement and the hard work that has brought you here.  As you embark on this exciting journey, we encourage you to stay informed and connected with valuable resources.  To assist you in this endeavor, we’ve compiled essential resources tailored to support your transition from college to the professional world.

Please take a moment to read the following IMPORTANT information, which aims to keep you informed and connected with valuable resources. We are thrilled to invite you to join our exciting new mentoring and networking platform, Stony Brook Mentor Connect, designed to support your continued growth and success beyond graduation. It is also an opportunity to offer support to our current students. 

Stony Brook University remains steadfast in its dedication to your lifelong success. Through our renowned Alumni Career Services, the SBU Career Center provides continuous career support to graduates across all degree programs. Our experienced coaches are here to help you recognize your strengths, refine your career path, establish genuine connections with alumni mentors, and ultimately reach your professional aspirations. Below is a list of helpful resources and links on maintaining your Handshake account. You can join us for our upcoming Grad Retreat or make a one-on-one appointment. 

Are you concerned about losing access to Handshake?

If so, add an alternative email to Handshake before you complete your time at Stony Brook University.

Handshake has a feature that allows students to add an alternative email to their account. Once you graduate and can no longer access your Stony Brook email, your personal email can be used as your primary contact. Don’t miss important opportunities and events following your time at Stony Brook University.
