Alumni Chapters

There are 76 alumni chapters in the U.S. and one in London. They are a great way to build personal and professional networks by discovering the paths of your fellow alumni. Active participation in your local chapter will result in new relationships and opportunities. And of course, W&L people know how to have fun! Our Alumni Chapters are organized by zip codes. Most alumni are automatically assigned to a chapter based on their home address. If you are not already receiving communications about chapter events, please access Colonnade Connections and update your contact information.

Chapters are named after metro and geographic areas, entire states, and larger regions that combine multiple states. After you’ve located the chapter nearest you, contact the Chapter President or Alumni Affairs Office to see how you can get involved.
