HUNTERConnects - HCHS Alumnae/i & Students
HUNTERConnects was created make it easier for HCHS students and alumnae/i to connect for internships, jobs, career advice, and referrals.
Alumnae/i are encouraged to submit internship and job opportunities for the HCHS Alumnae/i Association to publish. HCHS members will be able to view these postings and profiles about each other, and apply, connect, and/or refer each other to these and other opportunities.
In 2017, the HCHS Alumnae/i Association partnered with Pour Your Cup, a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) to help connect students and Alumnae/i through internship opportunities. The pilot was highly successful and is being continued in 2018.
In 1972, small ads were placed in The New York Times announcing the formation of the Hunter College High School Alumnae Association (the /i at the end of Alumnae was adopted in the 1980s after the first boys graduated). The new association was conceived by several parents of students of the High School at a time when the school was at risk of being closed due to the City and State fiscal crises. They realized that an organized association of alums could be a powerful advocate for the school. In 1974, the first issue of AlumNotes was published and mailed to 3,000 alums. Today the association is working hard to nurture the already strong Hunter alumnae/i community. The AA hosts an annual reunion, facilitates individual class reunions, and organizes numerous social events including theater parties, museum tours, happy hours and networking events. The AA publishes AlumNotes and maintains an online database.
