Alumni chapters are organized on a geographic basis. We recognize our alumni as among our most valued and talented resources and encourage alumni participation in helping to shape the institution’s future.

Chapter programs provide graduates with an important social, cultural, and educational network. Activities are initiated and organized by local alumni volunteers with the assistance from the Director of Alumni Relations and the Office of Institutional Advancement.

A chapter arranges and sponsors a wide variety of activities which include, but are not limited to:

  • Social events
  • Cultural events
  • Civic/Service projects
  • Admissions recruitments & receptions
  • Athletic events
