Alumni Gatherings

The MCAD Alumni Association Board of Directors invites you to join us at these great alumni gatherings in the Twin Cities area and elsewhere. Events hosted by our alumni association range from local networking happy hours and mentorship programs to large scale reunions. We also hold a number of alumni gatherings around the country each year.

Alumni events are listed on the events calendar and on the alumni Facebook page. We hope you join us!
