Resources Available To You

All communications sent to alumni are based off of the contact information you provide. By updating your information each time you move, you’ll be sure to receive invitations to events in your area, messages from classmates, news about Southwestern and other messages from the University. 

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 Alumni Association recognizes that many alumni formed their most valued Southwestern relationships through student organizations, residence halls, academic departments, social groups or shared interests. In recognition of the importance of these connections, ALUMNI CONNECTIONS GROUPS offer ways to stay involved with those organizations. 

There are many ways to remain connected to Southwestern after you graduate. If you find that you’re missing the Southwestern atmosphere, we encourage you to CONSIDER VOLUNTEERING. There are a variety of opportunities for you to continue to #BeSouthwestern!
