Individual college databases and social media sites such as LinkedIn are resources for looking up college alumni. Online and print publications are other methods for keeping tabs on college alumni.
Many colleges offer directories of alumni. The method for searching the database varies by college, but typically alumni need to update their own profiles.
LinkedIn has a feature called LinkedIn Classrooms that lists profiles of graduates from U.S. colleges. The feature allows users to research alumni by college. The database includes information about where the alumni live and work and also includes an option for contacting people in the database.
Alumni publications also highlight the activities and career paths of certain college graduates.
