The Eberly College of Science Alumni Society was established to promote better acquaintance and fellowship among alumni, faculty, students, and friends, and to promote the interests of science education and research. The Society is governed by an 18-member Board of Directors, with members from industry, government, law, and academia. The Board returns to campus twice a year for business meetings.

All graduates of the College of Science are members of the Eberly College of Science Alumni Society and also receive a lifetime subscription to the Science Journal, the College's magazine.
