Alumni Connections Online
LinkedIn, Facebook, @RPInet, and more help alumni network online
As the concept of “networking” becomes more tied to online tools, the Alumni Office is working to ensure that alumni can connect easily with each other in many of the most popular online sites. Following is a look at some of the ways Rensselaer alumni are interacting:
The alumni Web community @RPInet has been around for several years, but if you haven’t visited in a while, come back and check out the new features being added. Tools include a searchable alumni directory, an @alum.rpi.edu e-mail address, online class notes, and event registration. You may update your contact information online, then select which information you’d like to make available to other alumni. Using the advanced search function, you may search by industry type, occupation type, company, or geography. To sign into @RPInet for the first time, use your RPI ID number, which is printed on the mailing label of this issue of Rensselaer magazine. Visit http://arpinet.rpi.edu to get started.
