Regional Chapters

Regional chapters are formal groups charted in geographical regions for alumni to connect with each other. Activities vary by area but often include happy hours or athletic events, educational programs and career networking. All alumni are encouraged to get involved with local alums in their area. New chapters can be formed at any time. 

Professional Chapters

Professional alumni chapters provide a means for alumni to reconnect with friends and colleagues within their professional and academic careers. The activities and programming of these chapters vary but often include mentoring programs between current students and alumni and networking events for alumni and students. 

Special Interest Chapters

Special interest chapters provide a means for alumni to reconnect with friends and colleagues with similar background and educational interest. The activities and programming of these alumni chapters offer very similar programming to regional networking including mentoring programs between current student and alumni and networking events for alumni and students. 

Chapters provide opportunities for networking, professional development and entertainment through educational, cultural, social and family programs.
