Are you missing out on the all the fun with your Chicago Chapter?

Make sure you receive news and event invitations by updating your email and address in VUConnect.

As we welcome the change of seasons with the Chicago winter of 2013–2014 coming to an end, we also welcome some change in the Vanderbilt Alumni Association here in the Chicagoland area.  As the new president of the Chicago Chapter, I’m happy to have the opportunity to continue on the path that our previous presidents have put in place for us.  That path is one of community, collaboration and tradition associated with Vanderbilt University.

With a foundation of nearly 3,000 Vanderbilt graduates in the area, the goal of the chapter is to facilitate the connection of alumni to each other, to existing and prospective students, and importantly, to the university itself.  We are able to accomplish this goal through a variety of events: educational/cultural, networking/career development, athletic, community service and social.  And it certainly doesn’t hurt to have the great city of Chicago and all it has to offer at our disposal!

Whether you are interested in university professor presentations, an outdoor community service event in the summer, or simply want to watch a game with Vanderbilt colleagues at Sedgwick’s, we hope to see you in attendance.  We encourage you to connect with the community online by registering on VUConnect and by joining our Facebook and LinkedIn groups.  Also, feel free to reach out to me directly with any questions you may have—you’ll find my direct email by clicking on the “Chapter Leadership” tab to the right.

We look forward to seeing you soon, and go ‘Dores!

Chicago Chapter Past President
