Regional Alumni Contacts

Our alumni are spread far and wide across the globe and a pack of enthusiastic Panthers have taken the lead to form local alumni groups and organize regular gatherings. Why?? To stay connected and support one another! You may have graduated a while ago, but you are a #Panther4Life.

Check out the list below to get connected with fellow Panthers near you!

Don't have a Florida Tech Alumni Contact in your area? We have 68,000+ alumni worldwide! To simply peruse the listings to see who lives near you, visit our Alumni Directory on Florida Tech Connect.

Interested in being a Regional Alumni Contact? Reach out to the Alumni Office to start your own! Email or call (321) 674-6826.

Expectations of Regional Alumni Contacts:

  1. Be the point of contact for fellow alumni in your area to connect them with other Panthers.
  2. Organize and host at least one informal alumni social gathering per year (get-together at a pub, restaurant, winery, bowling alley, museum, sporting event, etc.)
  3. Be an ambassador for Florida Tech's Annual Day of Giving by sharing the information with your local alumni network and encouraging them to participate.
