Welcome to the Orange County Chapter of the Claremont McKenna College Alumni Association. There are more than 900 alumni in the Orange County area. 


The mission of the Orange County Chapter is to offer events throughout the year that enable alumni to meet each other and to stay in touch with Claremont McKenna College. We are always looking for new activities, so let us know if you have a great idea for an event.
