    Shall I use graduate as noun or verb?

    Here is what I wrote in my diary:

    Jan was a graduate of ABC College in 2011. Yesterday she visited her ABC College to contact with the tutors.

    Is it correct to write this?


    Please help, teachers.

    Tahnk you.

    Yesterday, she visited [ABC College] [her college] to talk to her tutors.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I would delete "her" and change "contact" to "speak".
