The Alumnae Association of the College of Industrial Arts was organized in 1905 to promote the University, to raise scholarship funds and to provide opportunities to current and former students and friends of the university for lifelong affiliation and volunteer partnership. The first alumni Beulah Kincaid of 1904, along with 9 graduates of 1905 saw the need for financial assistance for women to attend the school.   

The university has grown and prospered, progressing from the Girls Industrial College, the College of Industrial Arts to Texas State College for Women to Texas Woman's University. The Association has also experienced change and commits to broadening its goals and objectives to better represent all the school's diverse backgrounds of all our graduates.

The TWU Alumni Assn. Board of Directors works diligently to promote and protect the long traditions and values of TWU. Today, our alumni are actively supporting and volunteering for our programs and events.
