Chicago's YAC

The JHU Young Alumni Committee 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 a Goose Island Brewery tour, young alumni happy hours, and theater nights.

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.
