Over these years, innumerable students from all over the North-East India and also from other parts of the country have studied and made their successful career in this great temple of learning. While in some departments and hostels of the College, and on some special events, like the Golden Jubilee of the College, there were reunions of old Cottonians, no consorted effort was made to form an Alumni Association till the year 2001. Cotton College turned 100 on 27th May, 2001 and the Centenary of the college was celebrated in a befitting manner with a year long programme from 27th May, 2001 to 26th May, 2002. On this occasion, the Cotton College Alumni Association came into existence on 26th February, 2001 through a public meeting held in the Sudmersen Hall, Cotton College. Since its formation, a number of get-together of alumni were held in different parts of the country. In the year long Centenary Celebrations of Cotton College, two grand Alumni Meets have been organized during both 1st (opening) and 4th (concluding) phases of the celebrations. In the concluding phase, an ‘Alumni Directory’ was published by the Cotton College Alumni Association containing names and addresses of over 30,000 alumni of this College.
