Creating the Best Experience

  • Regional and Affinity Groups operate under the auspices of the Office of Alumni Relations. This allows groups’ access to staff support, communication systems and event management tools such as registration pages and other resources. When possible, budget dollars will be made available for programming.

  • Groups flourish best when they are led by a team of alumni volunteer leaders who help plan, host and communicate about events.

  • Most groups participate in annual planning meetings during the summer where ideas for events are given and calendars are made. This is a great time to give your input and help your ideas come to life!

  • You can join the regional and Affinity Groups at any time. If you are interested in being an active participant in your group, reach out to the alumni relations staff member responsible for your regional or Affinity Group information.

  • If you are interested in information about a regional or Affinity Group not listed on our Regional Group information page or Affinity Group information page, contact a staff member to learn more.

  • Share your story with us! Show what cool things or fun activities your Regional Group is doing, or tell us your experience getting involved with Owls in your area. You can also recognize a deserving volunteer by sharing their story.
