Alumni Networks

Connect with fellow Lakers

Alumni Networks are groups of alumni who gather for events to socialize, network, learn, and participate in community service in order to stay connected with each other and the university.

Networks are broken down by region, based on location, and affinity, based on an affiliation to a certain college/major, program, student organization, or other special interest.
