Once a Bearcat, Always a Bearcat!
“There’s a special connection between Bearcats, something I have discovered time and again. No matter the graduation year, I enjoy meeting my fellow alumni – and those who have yet to graduate. It is through the people of Willamette that I most deeply feel the connection to the university, so I’ll continue looking for ways to be involved.” – Adam DuVander ’02
Adam knows firsthand how the Willamette University Alumni Association (WUAA) enables meaningful and enduring connections throughout the Willamette community. The organization’s primary goal is to help Willamette alumni – from all schools – celebrate each other’s accomplishments and encourage each other to live out our motto.
The WUAA provides a variety of fun and engaging ways to get involved and connect – from career networking events and class reunions, to Alumni Weekend and the Explorers Travel Program. Plus, a variety of print and electronic communications will help you stay current with university happenings, as well as events and programs designed specifically for alumni. Want to join? No need! If you’ve attended Willamette for more than two semesters you are already a part of the 25,000 member strong alumni association.
This is an organization FOR you and shaped BY you, with a multitude of ways for you to plug in. So whether you want to just attend events or you have the time and energy to give back as a volunteer, we look forward to hearing from you and having you be a part of this vibrant organization.
