Chicago Young Alumni Community

Welcome to the Chicago Young Alumni Community! Did you know that there are over 200 young alumni in the Windy City?

Chicago's YAC

The JHU Young Alumni Community of Chicago aims to provide opportunities to network, socialize, learn and reminisce with other JHU young alumni (0-10 years) in the local area.  If you want to stay engaged with Hopkins, this is a great place to start. We are constantly exploring new activities, finding new ways to have a great time, and working with our alma mater to promote the university any way we can.

Past events have included young alumni happy hours, theater nights, and much more!

Not receiving e-mail from the YAC?

All alumni in the area should receive notices of events, but we can’t send them to you if we don’t know where you are! Be sure to update your contact information and stay connected.
