Stay Connected

Graduating doesn’t mean saying goodbye to Winona State University.

There are so many ways to stay connected to college friends, to faculty and staff who impacted your career, even to the campus and city in general.

Whether you’re a new grad or long-time alum, here’s how you can get involved at WSU.


There is no better time to show your Warrior pride than at Homecoming, the biggest alumni gathering of the year.

Each fall, thousands of alumni return to their alma matter for a special celebration of community and join with fellow alumni, current WSU students and the community to enjoy both planned and spontaneous festivities!

Sign Up as a Road Warrior

Road Warriors is a new program that gives graduates the chance to promote WSU at local college fairs or college days.

You'll be joining the Alumni Engagement and WSU Admissions teams and helping us cover promotional events we can't personally attend.

Make a difference in new students' college decision journeys by signing up as a Road Warrior today.

Become a Regional Warrior

Meet up with other WSU alumni in person by joining a chapter near you.

As a Regional Warrior, you'll get to know your Warrior Neighbors, coordinate and attend events, get the latest campus news, and support current WSU students with scholarships and more.

Email the Alumni Engagement Office at for more info.

Join the Mentoring Program

In the WSU Alumni Mentoring Program, alumni professionals volunteer their time to motivate and mentor current students who are eager to prepare themselves for success with the help of fellow Warriors.

You can mentor a student virtually or in person.

Be a Warrior Neighbor 

The Warrior Neighbor program is a way for WSU alumni to stay connected to fellow Warriors.

Through an interactive, online map, over 100 engaged alumni have volunteered to be a point of contact for fellow Warriors to help them make meaningful connections in their community and professional networks.

Nominate a Fellow Warrior

Each year at Homecoming, WSU recognizes individuals for their outstanding commitment to the University, its mission and to improving our world.

Do you know an alumni who embodies the Warrior Spirit?

Consider nominating them today for a Distinguished Awards or the Warrior Athletic Hall of Fame.
