FAQ

I have a Bennington Alumni account. Do I have to re-register?

Yes. Much of your personal and professional information will be pre-populated when you register, but you must create a new account for Bennington Connects.

Is my personal information and home address visible?

No. Professional information and general location is the only information that is visible to other alumni. You may see your home information in your profile, but that is only visible to you.

I’ve logged on and my personal and/or professional information is out of date.

If your information is out of date, you can update it directly on the app.

Who can use Bennington Connects? Is it secure?

Only verified Bennington College alumni can access the community. All data transmitted to Bennington Connects is encrypted.

I attended Bennington but did not obtain a degree. Can I access the directory?

As long as you attended Bennington for at least two terms and the College has you in its database, you are considered an alum of Bennington.

What if I don’t want to be a part of the app?

We are sorry to see you go, but we understand if you do not want to be a part of the app. You can do this one of two ways:

  1. You can download the app and simply hide your profile under setting, allowing you to still access some features of the app.
  2. You can opt out by emailing alumnirelations@bennington.edu and have your profile completely removed (removing your access to the app as well).
