Welcome, Oakton Alumni!

We are your Oakton. Every student that studied with us, however long ago, remains a part of this institution and its tradition of community. And Oakton’s Alumni Association is continuously working toward developing new programs and activities that connect you to the College!

To stay up-to-date with the Alumni Association and receive invitations to upcoming events, join our mailing list. Invitations to events and a quarterly e-newsletter with alumni stories, upcoming activities, and College updates are sent to subscribers.
