Step 2

Search on, comprehensive business information about people and companies. If the person you are looking for is listed on ZoomInfo, it will most likely include information about where he went to school.


Step 3

Browse through, a site that helps people reunite with old classmates. You need to know what city and state the person is from, and then you can search for the name on the list of schools.

Look for the person using paid search services, such as MyLife, to find more detailed information, if you cannot find out where she went to school using the free resources.
