Class Notes

Class notes have a new home online! Moving class notes to an online format helps Chatham to provide alumni with the ability to share news more frequently, upload photos, and stay better connected to classmates and friends. This new online format also helps Chatham to meet its sustainability goals, saving over 300,000 sheets of paper each time an issue is printed. Visit Class Notes today to share your latest news!
