Alumni Cooperative

Alumni Cooperative

About 

The spirit of collaboration informed our Bennington experiences when we were students, and that principle will continue to guide us as alumni. We are thrilled to invite all of you to join us in shaping and building the new Bennington Alumni Cooperative. It is our collective aim that this revitalized alumni structure will deepen the ways that alumni be substantially involved in the life of the College.
