    Alumni Club of Central New Jersey

    The Alumni Club of Central New Jersey was founded in 1988 to foster relationships and camaraderie between Syracuse University alumni that live and/or work in the Central New Jersey and the Jersey Shore areas.

    The club hosts events during the year, including social events like game watches at local pubs and eateries; cultural activities, such as museum tours; and, of course, our annual New Student Send-Off. During the year, we raise money through ticket sales to Syracuse University sporting events and donations made by local alumni, which enables us to give three scholarships per year to Central New Jersey and Jersey Shore residents who are currently attending SU.
