The Office of Alumni & Parent Relations helps alumni stay connected with each other and assists in fostering lifelong relationships with the University. As members you have access to the NDNU Alumni NetCommunity – an online service that makes it easy for you to:
- update your contact information
- register for events
- look up friends in the alumni directory
Parents of current students are honorary Argonauts and we welcome you to all NDNU events and volunteer opportunities as well.
