About The Chapter

Our chapter was established in 1985 to foster spirit and fellowship among SJSU alumni and friends who live in the Santa Cruz area.  We were the inaugural  and largest chapter in the SJSU Alumni Association.  We host a variety of social, athletic, and educational events through out the year.

The Santa Cruz Chapter supports continued education at San Jose State by providing scholarship to Santa Cruz area high school and Cabrillo College students to attend SJSU.  We also support our own education through excursions and guest lecturers.

Our major activities include a member's BBQ, Wharf to Wharf Race viewing party, Holiday Party and Scholarship fundraiser, SJSU Alumni Night at Santa Cruz Warriors, SJSU Campus Tours, and SJSU football bus trip and/or viewing party.

Our members come from a varied educational and professional backgrounds, and share a common interest in having a good time while promoting San Jose State University.  If you have specific areas of expertise to share or ideas for activities, please contact a board member.  We  are always open to new ideas and expanding our membership and programming.



Mission Statement is to foster spirit and fellowship among SJSU Alumni in the Santa Cruz area and to provide scholarship assistance to qualified SJSU students living in Santa Cruz County and to provide financial support to the world famous SJSU Marching Band.
