Who are MC alumni?
All students who took a continuing education class for personal enrichment, students who attended for one or two semesters then transferred to a university, former Kids' College students, GED recipients, College Classics students, Early College High School graduates, and, of course, MC certificate completers, associate degree graduates and baccalaureate graduates are encouraged to join.

Joining the Midland College Alumni Association is one of the best ways to show your Chaparral pride! Throughout the year the Association sends out publications and hosts a number of events to help you maintain a close connection to Midland College. We also provide opportunities for you to network, socialize, and give back.
The past year’s events included a mixer at Twist Restaurant & Bar, a clean-up of our new Keep Midland Beautiful Adopt-A-Spot, and a volunteer opportunity during Lone Star Pet Sanctuary’s Runnin’ Fur Rescues Spooky 5K.
Each year our alumni also generously help raise funds to award a scholarship to a deserving Midland College student planning to transfer to a four-year institution.
MEMBERSHIP COST: FREE!
Midland College alumni make me proud to be the college’s president. Our alumni do great things, and I hope that you have pleasant memories of your time at Midland College. I continue to be impressed by the achievements and commitment of our alumni.
We say that Midland College is Your College, and that is especially true for our alumni. We want you to stay engaged in the ongoing life of the college. Join us at Chap Center for our Davidson Distinguished Lecture Series events and exciting performances sponsored by the Phyllis and Bob Cowan Performing Arts Series. We have several other major events scheduled in 2022 as MC celebrates its 50th anniversary and will be relaying more information about those events later. Alumni and their families are always welcome.
As an MC alum, you’ve achieved something great. If you would like to pay it forward and help others do the same, I encourage you give to the MC Alumni Scholarship so that future MC students can achieve their dreams just like you have done. Visit www.midland.edu/gift. We welcome any amount — it all helps to support the next generation of our Chaps family.
Gold Star Alumni (those who give an amount of $100 or more) will receive preferred seating for two and an invitation to a pre-performance reception at one of our upcoming Cowan Performing Arts events.
If you have any questions, comments or would simply like to “reconnect” with Midland College, I welcome you to contact us. We love hearing from our alumni and the great things you are accomplishing!
Steve Thomas, Ph.D.
President, Midland College
