Mercy and CNR Crests together

Who are CNR alumni?

Although The College of New Rochelle may have closed her doors, the ties that bind CNR graduates remain strong.  Connections to our rich collective history, the values we share, and the people and places we love are gifts we will always treasure.  

College of New Rochelle alumni have settled into a new home and now continue operations as the CNR Alumni Legacy Association within the infrastructure of Mercy University.

Mercy is dedicating time, enthusiasm, and funds to preserve our history as well as sustain and reinvigorate CNR alumni engagement. You will see Mercy’s genuine commitment expressed in familiar ways such as reunions, regional events, programs for lifelong learning, professional networking, and career support and you can anticipate seeing new opportunities emerge as we explore this unfamiliar state of being.    

We are fortunate to be situated at a college with a mission so closely aligned to that of The College of New Rochelle.  CNR graduates have already been featured in Mercy's print and digital communications and were welcomed at Mercy University-wide events from day one. 

We invite you to reconnect with your classmates--tell us your story, share your news, send us your photos, and let us know what you have been doing within your community, career and family lives. Call (914-888-5254), email, or use the CNR Alumni Update form.
