NC Alumni Events

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we will communicate as best we can regarding the postponement and/or cancellation of certain alumni engagement events. We have been working in conjunction with golf courses and CDC guidelines to ensure safety for all who plan to attend any of our summer golf outings. We are hopeful that we will be able to host these events as scheduled below. If you have specific questions, email the Office of Alumni Engagement at alumni@noctrl.edu.
