Alumni, Parents & Friends
DSON Nursing History Collection
Nursing and nursing education has a long history reaching well back into the 19th century. Although the Decker School is young, it shares in this rich history, and we would like to commemorate this lineage in a permanent display within the school. Any memorabilia related to the Decker School or the nursing profession such as pins, photos, books, and other mementos that you are willing to part with or lend to us would be welcome.
Reconnect with Decker School classmates through the Binghamton University Alumni Association.
The Alumni Association offers a number of benefits and services to Binghamton graduates, and runs many alumni events throughout the year, including Homecoming Weekend. Parent programming consists of the annual Family Weekend on campus, as well as news and information to help parents help their students succeed at Binghamton.
Decker School alums will also want to visit the Alumni Association web site to find links to the BU alumni on-line community and links that allow you to update your snail mail and e-mail address information. The latter will ensure that you receive electronic notifications of on-line issues of Alumni Connect.
The BU Alumni Association web site also provides a link to theBinghamton Alumni Journal archives, the publication produced prior to Binghamton University Magazine. While visiting the alumni web site you may also want to check out the on-line Alumni Career Network.
