Alumni House

Christopher Newport’s future begins with our past. Today, more than ever, our alumni are actively engaged with their alma mater in countless ways. And with 50 years of graduates — 25,000 strong — now is the perfect time to build a permanent home honoring these “Captains for Life.”

Alumni House will provide an ideal setting for many special activities:

  • Large gatherings for up to 300 people
  • Intimate family events
  • Receptions
  • Meetings
  • — and much more

Here we will also preserve and share Christopher Newport’s history. A unique collection of permanent and changing exhibits will reflect our rich heritage and dramatic transformation, celebrating those alumni who continue to change the world by leading lives of significance.

As we honor the past and embrace the future, we look forward to opening the doors to the Christopher Newport Alumni House. Thanks to the generous support of our alumni, parents and friends, and a business plan for long-term success, we are poised to make the Alumni House a reality.

The Alumni House will be a place for all Christopher Newport alumni to call home — a place to reunite with friends, former classmates, professors and, of course, to reminisce about our college days.

Join Us

The Alumni House symbolizes our excellence, the achievements of our outstanding alumni, the aspirations of our exceptional students and our pride as Captains. It will showcase the history of Christopher Newport and play host to events that will bring us together to reminisce and rejoice.

We’re asking every Captain to join together to help build this spectacular campus home. Gifts of every size are needed and valued. Please join us and make your gift or pledge today!

When you ask people to give you their very best,
they will astound you with their success
