Alumni Relations Office
Once you have graduated from Richland, you have many reasons to return to campus. Many of the facilities and services that were available to you as a student are still available to you as a Richland Alumni.
Alumni are always welcome to return to campus! Come over and have lunch at the Bistro Five Thirty Seven or Praire Grille, or shop at the Richland Bookstore. You can browse in the library and take advantage of your privileges or enjoy an event. Your connections to Richland do not end when you graduate.
Distinguished Alumnus Award
The Illinois Community College Trustees Association sponsors the Distinguished Alumnus Award each year. All community colleges in the state of Illinois submit their local winners to be considered for these statewide awards. The Distinguished Alumnus Award recognizes the many success stories of Illinois' community college graduates. Nominees must have completed a recognized program of instruction at an Illinois public community college more than 5 years ago.
The Richland Community College Alumni Relations Office encourages anyone who has graduated from Richland, with a degree or a certificate, to reconnect to Richland Community College as a member of the Richland Community College Alumni Association. Members enjoy benefits of staying in touch with former classmates, keeping informed about what is happening at Richland through an alumni newsletter, becoming involved in alumni activities, and receiving invitations to special events.
