Alumni Relations and Advancement Services

Benedict College has graduated more than 16,000 alumni residing in South Carolina and across the United States and in more than 10 foreign countries. More than 850 alumni are dues paying members of the Benedict College National Alumni Association. There are 55 alumni clubs, 40 of which are located in South Carolina. Outside of South Carolina, clubs are located in California, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Maryland, Michigan, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Texas, and the District of Columbia.

We have a total of 50 active alumni classes with a goal of 65 within the next 5 years. Most of our support from classes is derived from those in years of 1974 and older.

Alumni clubs and classes serve the college most directly through fundraising, recruitment, and volunteer service activities. They also serve as ambassadors of the College, providing a vital link between the College and the communities in which they reside.
