Celebrate 50 Years of Transforming Lives!

Once in a lifetime, we have the opportunity to celebrate a milestone such as this, the 50th Anniversary of Charter Oak State College, Connecticut’s Only (all) ONLINE Public College!

We invite you to make your mark on history and join us, Saturday, June 10, 2023, at our 50th Anniversary Gala, the semi-formal party you don't want to miss!

Charter Oak alumni, faculty, board members, benefactors, students, and staff - from near and far - will gather to dine and dance the night away to music by DJ Dr. Love!

We begin with a cocktail hour, a display of the Works of Art contest entries, and the opening bids for our 2023 Silent Auction. We will also honor our Alumni - Faculty - and Community members.

Most importantly, together, we will raise much-needed funding to remove barriers, create equity, and directly (and positively) impact degree completion success.
