Moved to a new city? Use your alumni network!
SFU alumni become a natural network; when you move to a new city, one of the easiest ways to get settled is to reach out to other alumni in the area. They can be a great resource for helping you to figure out the tips and tricks to your new city.
The SFU Alumni LinkedIn page is also another great place to try to connect with other graduates. Join us?

By updating your current contact information it allows us to keep you up-to-date on engaging alumni events in your region, enlighten you about benefits and services you can access, and keep you informed through our monthly eNewsletter.
Join the conversation online
Join the Alumni Online Directory
Stay connected with your peers and expand your network through our private Alumni Online Directory. Search for classmates, send private messages, and update your address and employment information with SFU.
Attend alumni events
From professional development, to pub nights, to lectures, to formal receptions, there are hundreds of alumni events that happen each year across the globe. Visit our events page often to see what's new!
Make a gift!
Most students and graduates don't realize that the majority of everyone's education is paid for through taxes and donations. Alumni constitute 80% of the University's donors (thank you!).
Help make a difference for students. Did you know you can set up a bursary, scholarship, and/or endowment fund in your name? Did you know that even a $10 monthly donation can go along way? Did you know that SFU accepts Bitcoin donations? Find out more
Keep up-to-date with the monthly eNewsletter
Stay up-to-date on all things alumni through the monthly alumni eNewsletter. It's a great way to see all the events coming up, check out interesting alumni stories, and read special announcements.
