UChicago’s Young Alumni Network is composed of alumni who are up to nine years out from their College graduation. Being a part of this community offers opportunities that connect you with fellow alums, admission to fun events, and access to online learning tools to continue your education.


Long after you’ve left the classroom, you can continue to pursue a wide range of social and learning opportunities through the UChicago Alumni Association, including academic panels and lectures, career development and mentoring opportunities, and many other events around the world and online.

  • Reunions: celebrate your graduation milestone over Alumni Weekend
  • Wisr: become a mentor on the new UChicago Wisr Network
  • Signature Events: network with fellow alumni
  • Career Month: learn from fellow Maroons in a series of career-focused webinars


Annual gifts—of any amount—add up quickly, making a tremendous impact across the University of Chicago. Annual funds sustain and expand scholarships, fellowships, internships, faculty support, study abroad, and many other distinctive programs that advance rigorous, UChicago-style inquiry and collaboration around the world.

When you make an annual gift, you join an international community of UChicago donors representing a broad range of philanthropic priorities and backgrounds.

There are many ways to support UChicago with an annual gift.

Giving every year? Thank you! You’re a member of the Maroon Loyalty Society and we’re grateful for your generosity.
