You are here: American University Alumni Engage Young Alumni Chapters

Any AU alumnus/a/i who graduated in the last 10 years and lives in the DC or NYC metropolitan areas are welcome to engage with a Young Alumni Chapter. Both chapters sponsor social, cultural, and professional events and work with other affinity groups to create meaningful programs to enrich the lives of young alumni.
