Help us reconnect with your fellow alumni

Each year, Manchester loses track of alumni who forget to update their information with us. If you can help us reconnect with them, we would greatly appreciate your help.

Please click here to see if you know the whereabouts of people on the lists. Names of alumni for whom we are missing information are listed by decade. If you do have information, please use the Lost Classmates Form to provide as much information as possible.

Your assistance will ensure that your friends receive Manchester magazine and other communications throughout the year, including invitations to alumni outings, gathering and events such as Homecoming. Thank you for your help!
