Lifelong connections


The aim of the Sheldon College Alumni is to provide graduates of Sheldon College with the opportunity to stay connected, by increasing the depth of engagement between members of the College community. 

Sheldon College Alumni is run by an Advisory Board of past students, using personal and meaningful connections to strengthen the relationship between the Alumni and College community by growing opportunities that are mutually beneficial. Sheldon College Alumni holds various events throughout the year for graduates and provides an interface to keep you up to date with Alumni news, as well as College news and events.
