At HPU, you are forever a Yellow Jacket, even after you receive your diploma. The Office of Alumni Relations seeks to connect our valued alumni with one another, as well as with our faculty and current students. If you have taken just one class at HPU, you are alumni. Whether you just attended HPU, graduated last year or many years ago, please stop by and visit. We can’t wait to show you around the campus you know and love!
