The mission of the Purchase College Alumni Association (PCAA) is to cultivate fellowship among alumni and foster mutually productive and rewarding relations between alumni and the College community.


Kevin Collymore '10 Spring / Summer 2022 Letter
from the Alumni Association President

Dear Fellow Alumni,

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Purchase College Alumni Association (PCAA), I am delighted to share some exciting updates from Purchase College!

The academic year began with students, faculty, and staff back together in person. Classrooms, studios, and stages across campus were filled with incredible energy and a passion to learn and grow. We look forward to welcoming nearly 800 members of the Class of 2022 as new alumni.

Looking ahead, applications for 2022-2023 have returned to levels not seen since before the pandemic and the pool of candidates reflects that our outstanding reputation in the arts and liberal arts and sciences continues to extend well beyond the State of New York. With this trajectory, Purchase will soon have a large new cohort of students and a fully vibrant campus once again.

Your support as an alum has made this good news possible. Thank you to all who volunteered as mentors, spoke to a class, engaged with students during PCAA-hosted events, or made a generous financial gift.  

For those who have not yet signed up to be a mentor or a mentee, this is a great time to share your experience with young alumni and students. And for those looking for advice and guidance, Purchase alumni are ready to help you as you navigate your career path.

Get involved and make an impact by paying it forward for the next generation of alumni!  Join the Board.  Volunteer to serve on one of our committees or Affinity Groups.  Or share an idea for a virtual event or program for our community. Watch your in-boxes for details or reach out directly to alumni@purchase.edu! 

We hope you have a great summer and look forward to seeing you in person again during this Fall’s Alumni Weekend on September 30-October 1!

Stay safe and well,
Kevin Collymore ’10
