To the Class of 2011,

Commencement day is nearly here! On behalf of the William Paterson University Alumni Association, I want to extend my congratulations to you for achieving this significant milestone.
I'm happy to welcome you to our family of more than 62,000 William Paterson alumni.  This summer, we will send you an official Alumni Association ID card and parking decal which you may use whenever you return to campus - and we hope you will do so often! You can also meet WP friends on our WP Alumni Facebook page at and make professional connections with alumni at Linkedin at
I hope that you are planning to attend this year’s Senior Send-Off Celebration on May 17, the night before commencement. This year’s Send-Off will be a very special student only event that will feature music, dancing, refreshments, photo booth, senior toast, and other surprises. The winner of this year’s Outstanding Senior Award will also be announced at Senior Send-Off.  And don't forget - you can purchase senior class gift tickets with your Pioneer Bucks at the Senior Send-Off!  Please be sure to rsvp at The reservation deadline has been extended to Monday, May 16.

Before you graduate, please take a moment to visit to update your address, phone number, and supply an alternate email so we can notify you about career programs, networking opportunities, and young alumni events, especially our Staycation on June 25-26 and the Young Alumni Summer Bash at Bar A on July 16.
