You're Always Welcome

W&L alumni know the importance of gathering together, from walking down the Colonnade to networking at a local happy hour as you plan your next career move to traveling down the Danube as you relive some of your best experiences from college. The Office of Alumni Engagement is your resource for staying connected to W&L. We organize events on campus, in regional alumni chapters and across the world through our Lifelong Learning programs. We also maintain an Alumni Board of Directors and a student outreach group, Kathekon, that listen to and inform our community about issues that matter to the university we love.

Our goal is to ensure that W&L alumni never stop learning from one another and always feel connected to our alma mater.
