Alumni Membership

Our memories make us alumni. Our commitment makes us members.

From the moment you committed to attend Coppin, your life was set on a course to be challenged and changed. None of us could ever forget the day our loved ones shouted as we walked across that stage celebrating that initial commitment we made to ourselves and our alma mater.

Each year, we ask our alums to consider making the investment to help others complete the journey they once took. Show your commitment by joining the Coppin State University Alumni Association (CSUAA). Think of it as your "Remembership."

Share your stories

Along with your own perseverance and dedication to completing your degree, we imagine there is a professor, classmate or staff member you credit for having your back and giving you that extra push to graduate. Perhaps it was a class you took, a book you read or a place on campus you frequented that, in some way, inspired you to become the person you are today. No matter what it was, we want to hear about it. Please don’t be shy!
