Newsletters and Publications
All alumni receive three printed publications each year:
- Two special events postcards, which outline the paid and free events for alumni each fall and spring
- The President's Report is published each year in November and highlights the previous year's accomplishments
In addition to our printed publications, all alumni and friends of the college can receive the e-Connection
monthly electronic newsletter by registering their e-mail address at the MassArt alumni community. e-Connection
is emailed in the fourth week of each month. It's your resource for what's happening at MassArt and with other alumni. Each month you'll find:
Special events exclusively for alumni
MassArt exhibitions and openings, film screenings, lectures, service learning opportunities, and volunteer opportunities
Alumni and faculty updates, exhibitions and openings, news and notes
Calls for artists, studio space for rent, and other community events of interest to alumni
MassArt E-mail Address!
MassArt students who graduated in 2011 will not lose their MassArt e-mail address. Instead, MassArt is following in the footsteps of many of its peers and switching to Google Apps for Higher Education - essentially, Gmail designed for colleges and universities. The changeover will begin in the spring of 2012, and we will notify alumni of the process as it begins.
This means that all current and future students will be able to keep their MassArt e-mail address indefinitely.
For those of you who already lost your MassArt.edu e-mail address, Google has made it possible for you to have one as well. Simply go into "MY PROFILE" and click the tab "MASSART EMAIL" and create your own MassArt.edu e-mail address.
All the library resources to which you had access as a student are also available to you as an alumnus/a - if you’re on campus. If you live outside of Boston and can’t get to campus, you can access a selection of the research databases and other alumni resources here
The Alumni Photo ID
As a MassArt alumna/us you may access a number of the resources on campus with an Alumni Photo ID. Please note that the MassArt Alumni Photo ID is necessary for entrance to the MassArt campus. You must fill out an application for an Alumni ID in person in the Alumni Office on the 11th floor of the Tower Building (9:00am - 5:00pm, Mon - Fri). A quick visit to the Public Safety office to have your photo taken completes the process. The Alumni ID is free of charge.
