Alumni Scottsdale Community College

Attention all Fighting Artichokes! Scottsdale Community College (SCC) has announced its new Alumni Engagement Program, which will connect SCC graduates across generations to create a network of innovative thinkers, impactful changemakers, and inspiring artists. This community of Artichokes will support each other and help current students get the most out of their college experience. Alumni are invited to attend the Inaugural Alumni Connections networking mixer and launch party on Oct. 26, 2023.

“With more than 50 years of academic excellence, we are so proud of the hundreds of thousands of students who have turned to SCC to help achieve their educational and professional goals,” says Dr. Eric Leshinskie, President of SCC. “I want to invite our alumni to reach out and consider contributing their time and talent to make a difference. You could mentor students, support scholarships, or champion major initiatives for the college and the community!”

All SCC graduates are granted membership to the Alumni Engagement Program at no cost or obligation. With that, they will receive special access to a number of unique benefits. The Alumni Discount Program offers thousands of discounts for SCC alumni in dozens of product and service categories, including parks like Universal Studios and LEGOLAND, as well as neighborhood entertainment venues like Harkins and AMC Theatres.

The “Connections” newsletter will keep alumni informed about everything new at SCC, as well as highlight impactful stories from the school's many noteworthy graduates. Membership also includes access to special events. Whether it's a passion for sports, personal development, fine and performing arts, and more, SCC’s robust calendar of events offers alumni ongoing entertainment throughout the year. And more seasoned alumni have the opportunity to learn new skills and keep their minds sharp with a Senior tuition discount.
