Philadelphia Young Alumni Committee


Welcome to the Philadelphia Young Alumni Committee! Did you know that over 500 young alumni call the City of Brotherly Love home?

Why Philly ROCKS:

  • The iconic Rocky Steps are the Stairs leading to the East Entrance of the Philadelphia Museum of Art
  • HISTORY! The signing of the Declaration of Independence occurred in Philadelphia and you can visit the 2,080lb Liberty Bell
  • You can root for every type of sport in Philly: Eagles, Phillies, Flyers, 76ers, Unions, and Wings!

Past events include happy hours, tailgates, lax watch, Hopkins in Action, and much more!

Philly's YAC

The JHU Young Alumni Committee of Philadelphia 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.

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.
