You are here: American University Alumni Engage Student-Alumni Programs

The Alumni Association is committed to developing programs designed to bring students and alumni together. Through meaningful interaction between students and alumni, we can inspire learning and encourage lasting relationships. The Alumni Association hosts a variety of events for students and alumni to interact. Students benefit from the advice and guidance from experienced professionals and alumni remain connected to AU.

  • Learn more about the Alumni Association and Student-Alumni Programs during the Eagle Summit Community Showcase event when you visit campus for summer or winter orientation. 

  • Join the Alumni Association at the Convocation Bagel Breakfast before Convocation during All-American Welcome to officially kick off your time at AU.
