Does the Alumni Association want donations of my old Charity

Can I get a copy of my yearbook?
CSN has a large number of left-over yearbooks beginning from the early seventies. The Alumni Association will mail any of the yearbooks listed below to you if you just pay $5 for postage. Most of the books listed we have in large numbers, but (few) after the year indicates we only have two or three, so they may go fast.

The yearbooks available are: 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983 (few), 1984 (few)1992 (few), 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004.

Send a check for $5 made out to CHSNAA, and tell us the year you want, to: 
CHSN Alumni Association, 450 South Claiborne Ave, New Orleans, LA 70112. 
You can also pay for a yearbook on the Order Online page of this website.  
Be sure to include the year you want in the Note to Seller section.

If you are looking for other years, we will be happy to keep a record of your request in case we receive a donated yearbook, but we don’t have any others at this time. Contact us at chsnaaoffice@gmail.com or call 504-571-1395. If you’d like to pass your yearbook along to someone who might want it, you can mail it or drop it off to the Alumni office at the address above.  

How can I get information about what I’m doing printed in The White Cap or Alumni News 
Just send it to us. We are always happy to print alumni news in our publications.  
Mail to: CHSN Alumni Association, 450 South Claiborne Ave, New Orleans, LA 70112, 
or email to: chsnaaoffice@gmail.com.

Can I write an article for The White Cap or Alumni News?  
Will you publish photos?
Absolutely! Just send it to us. We are always happy to print articles and photos that would be of interest to our alumni. Mail to: CHSN Alumni Association, 450 South Claiborne Ave, New Orleans, LA 70112, or email to: chsnaaoffice@gmail.com.

We do not accept advertisements, but will print announcements of events or job opening that would be of general interest to our graduates.  The White Cap is usually published in May, and the Alumni News is published in November. We must receive your news or article a minimum of a month prior in order to be included, but that is not a guarantee – it may be pushed to the next publication depending on space available.

450 South Claiborne Ave, New Orleans, LA 70112, or email to: chsnaaoffice@gmail.com, or call the office at 504-571-1395. Please give us the name of the alumni and date of their death. We will print the notice in our next publication.

How do I plan a class reunion?
Most classes choose to schedule reunions at the Alumni Association events, either at the spring Luncheon or the fall Breakfast. If you are interested in planning a reunion, the Alumni Association will be happy to send you the contact information we have for your classmates. If you let us know enough in advance, we will print information about your reunion plans in The White Cap or the Alumni News. We will also reserve a table for your class. Contact us at chsnaaoffice@gmail.com or call 504-571-1395.

Can I visit the School of Nursing while I’m in town? How about the dorm?
The best time to tour the School of Nursing is at Homecoming which is held at the school every five years. Then all the classrooms, labs and other facilities are open, and guided tours are available of the school and the dorm. Otherwise, if you visit the school while classes are in session, you will only be able to see the lobby, the patio where the Commemorative Brick Wall is located, and the library. The dorm is now owned by LSU and is never open for tours except at Homecoming. The next Homecoming will be in the Fall of 2020.

I left a message on the Alumni Office answering machine. How soon will someone return my call?
We do not have staff in the Alumni office on a daily basis, but the mail and answering machine are checked at least once a week. (Please speak slowly and clearly when you leave a message so we can understand your name and phone number!) Your call will be returned within seven days. It can help if you let us know why you are calling so we can have the information available when we return the call.  You can also email us at chsnaaoffice@gmail.com and you may get a faster response.
