While updating, you can also mark "Private" any information you do not wish to share with the rest of the community.

Can I make the main Eagle's Nest page my default start-up page on my browser?

Yes. You will need to tell your browser to make the URL for the Eagle's Nest main page the home page. The URL is: http://www.alumni.eastern.edu

I am having trouble finding an alumnus/a. Help!

First of all, be aware that some Eastern alums have opted out of the directory. Their names will not appear in the search.

Some other search issues:

Most search issues are due to misspellings, so check your spellings carefully.

Also, only use as much information as you're sure is accurate. For instance, if you are unsure if an alum's last name is "Hutchinson" or "Hutchison" just type in "Hutch". Or, if you are unsure if a first name is "Sue" or "Susan", just type in "Su".

You can narrow your search by typing in multiple fields. However, if you are having trouble, sometimes less is more! Not all the fields need to be filled in, so you might try simply searching on last name and leave off frist name, class year, middle name, etc. entirely.

Please Contact Us if you should encounter any technical problems or cannot access your information.

We hope you enjoy your Online Alumni Community! Don’t forget to visit often and add the site to your “favorites”. Please contact the Alumni Relations Office at alumni@eastern.edu or 800.600.8057 with any questions.
