  1. Why membership?
    • In a nutshell, life membership helps your child to maintain lasting relationships with classmates and fellow alumni, stay connected to the University, and build their career.

Many students join the Alumni Association initially as a Student Life Member. This enables him or her to participate in exclusive programs and benefits while on Grounds and to defer dues until after graduation with no obligation. By purchasing a life membership, you are sustaining our undergraduate programming for future generations. Programming for our undergraduate members continues as alumni – YAR will be on Homecomings weekend in Fall 2016…
