Local Chapters

The Southwestern University Alumni Association welcomes you to explore events and activities in your area!

About Local Chapters

Local chapters offer alumni a wide variety of opportunities to continue the Southwestern Experience. Rekindle old friendships, make new acquaintances, continue lifelong learning, enjoy special events and explore professional opportunities, all the while helping to enhance Southwestern’s reputation in your community.

The Local Chapters and Connection Groups Chair on the Alumni Council is Russell Ramsey ’66
