SF State Alumni Association

The SF State Alumni Association contains information about membership, alumni events, and other related alumni interests. The SF State Alumni Association was started in the 1930s to create and maintain a partnership among alumni, the University and the community. It encourages alumni to promote and support the University; and it provides SF State alumni with services, benefits, networking opportunities and continued access to the University community.

"After graduation in May of 2009, I took off to the Peruvian Amazon where I lived with a group of individuals from the Machiguenga tribe for four months. While there, I was volunteering and "doing anthropology" at a tourist lodge run by the Machiguengas about a day away from their native communities. I established a great relationship with the tribe and hope to return to the jungle in eight months to continue my work. In the meantime I am working on an ehtnography about my time there and playing in a rock n roll band. I give a special thanks to all my professors at SF State who taught me the fine arts of anthropology and ethnography."
