1. Introduction

1.1. The Background of Topics

At the globalization of information atmosphere, social networking, Web technologies, ASP.NET technology and SQL Server database system in the environment of rapid development of technology to get healthy (Wang and Zhao, 2011; Li and Fu, 2009). And rapid development of these technologies has penetrated into our all aspects of daily life (Li, 2001; Wang and Liui, 2009). In the past, all the old-fashioned contact, can no longer keep up with the current pace of life because of inefficient, time-consuming, etc. So alumni management system must provide a platform to overcome these shortcomings.

Alumni management system, as the name suggests, it is a platform to communicate with each other among alumni and alma mater. The users of the system are divided into system administrators and ordinary users. System administrators must be added to database, while ordinary users can be registered with the site. Ordinary users can publish and view the news and messages at the website, achieving real online communication.

The system provides a mutual contact platform for alumni. In such a rapidly changing era, our social circle become more and more widely, contact information may be due to various reasons will be replaced very frequently. If you replace Information, notifying everyone who would contact you was somewhat realistic and time-consuming. But if there is a unified social platform, we only need to update information on this platform, and ensure that all users of this platform are visible. In this way not only save manpower, but also save time and improve efficiency.

In the process of this system building, I take full advantage of Web front-end web production, ASP.NET, SQL Server 2008 database, Photoshop and other technology, which enabled me have a more thorough understanding of ASP.NET language and SQL Server 2008 database as well as the development and implementation of site systems.
