Affinity Groups

The Alumni Association recognizes these to be groups of people who have a shared identity or common goal to build community among members of the Oneonta community. Shared interests and identities connect Red Dragon alumni with each other and our campus community. From academic majors to athletics to Greek Life and more - there is more than likely a place for you (and if not ask us how you may be able to start one).
