Alumnus/Alumna of the Year
Since 1998, the Alumni Association has been recognizing outstanding alumni with the Alumnus/Alumna of the Year Award. Every year, the Alumni Association Board members vote and select the Alumnus/Alumna of the Year. The decision is based on the alum’s involvement with his or her community as well as commitment to the profession. The Alumnus/Alumni of the Year is an extraordinary individual who leads by example.
The Alumni Network
The Office of Student Affairs maintains a network of optometrists who have agreed to have their names and contact information available to students who want to become more acquainted with the profession by spending a day observing in an office. This network also provides mentoring for students.
To join the Alumni Network, contact Student Affairs at (212) 938-5500.
The Alumni Association will be sponsoring a series of workshops beneficial to all alumni. These workshops will cover the following topics: Financial planning, financial advice, resume writing, preparing for professional interviews, job placement advice, etc.
Lunch & Learn
Twice a year, alumni have the opportunity to return to the College and talk about life after SUNY Optometry. In the spring and fall, the Alumni Association sponsors an informal alumni/student lunch. Past Lunch & Learn sessions have been very well received by the students. We hope to continue this tradition and encourage alumni participation.
Continuing Professional Education
The College offers a variety of continuing education opportunities. Check out the Continuing Professional Education page for more information.
