Our Alumni Network

Today there are dozens of cities in the United States and around the world with significant alumni populations where you can get involved.

Our alumni are Arts & Sciences in action

Arts & Sciences alumni are leaders in fields ranging from medicine to teaching to management, and everything in between. Our graduates are also leaders in the alumni community, serving to help build and strengthen the connection to Washington University that remains long after the last test has been taken and the last paper written.

Thousands of alumni, parents and friends around the world donate their time and talent to Washington University. Many of these volunteers - our key leaders in St. Louis and around the country - focus their attention on Arts & Sciences. Their work builds alumni ties and supports students—and plays a critical role in sustaining and strengthening the Washington University mission.

Keep a lifelong connection

Commencement is not the end of your relationship with Washington University - merely the end of one chapter, and the start of another. Arts & Sciences is proud to offer information on opportunities for our alumni to stay informed, stay connected, and strengthen their ties with the school and one another. There are many opportunities to keep a lifelong connection to Washington University.
