The St. Edward’s University Alumni Association connects alumni to the university and fellow graduates. There is no fee to join, and as a graduate or former student, you are automatically a part of our alumni family that reaches across the country and around the world.
We hope you will be an active member of the St. Edward’s community. You can get involved by attending events on campus or in your area, connecting with your local chapter and volunteering. The Alumni Association has thriving alumni chapters from coast-to-coast, driven by alumni volunteer leaders, that host social and service events in their communities. You can also give your time and talent to St. Edward’s by volunteering for your alma mater — alumni serve as volunteers in student recruitment, chapter leadership, career advising and so much more.
About the Alumni Association
Forging Friendships Worldwide
From Austin to San Francisco, from Dallas to Washington, D.C., our alumni are part of a network that reaches across the United States and beyond. They connect with each other at social gatherings. They join together for service projects during the holidays and to celebrate Founders Day. They support the university through fundraising and volunteer efforts. They speak to students about St. Edward’s during college fairs at local high schools. They recruit students for internships and hire alumni to help build a strong network.
Our alumni get involved wherever. They connect with alumni near them and plan local events. Above all, they engage — and forge new friendships — with fellow alumni who understand what St. Edward's stands for and how it changes lives.
Chapters and Networks
Driven by volunteer leaders, the St. Edward’s University Alumni Association keeps alumni connected with the hilltop and with each other through alumni chapters located throughout the United States.
