Alumni Association Board Updates
Hello Albright College Alumni Nation,
The Alumni Association Board is gearing up to start our 2023-24 year representing each and every Albright Alumni Lion in our pride! While the academic year has just begun, the Alumni Association is hard at work – our Alumni Volunteers recently gave a warm welcome to the new members of our community, the Albright College Class of 2027, who are our newest Alumni in Training. During the Welcome Weekend Carnival our Alumni Association, joined by the Society of Black Alumni (SOBA), gave out mini-Albright Lions, along with some other great Albright swag so our new community members felt right at home knowing that they have more than 17,000 alumni cheering them on as they start their academic journey.
There are so many great events planned for this coming academic year and all of us on the Alumni Association Board encourage you to come on out, bring your family or friends, call your old roommate and ask them to tag along, and stop by campus! We hope to see you at Homecoming between September 22 and 24, at Alumni Weekend, a Domino Players production, an Albright Athletics event, or perhaps a choir concert.
On behalf of the Alumni Association Board, we all wish you a great end of the Summer – see you at Homecoming!

Albright Alumni Association Board Task Force Projects
The Affinity Group Task Force
The task force submitted and approved guidelines to define and organize affinity groups in the future. A priority for the Affinity Group Task Force is to gauge interest in an LGBTQ affinity group. To that end, they will host a mixer during Alumni Weekend, Saturday, April 22 at 1 p.m. in Alumni Hall, Faculty Lounge. Students will be invited to mix and mingle with alumni who participated in Pride+ and Gay/Straight Alliance. The task force will identify need for and interest in an LGBTQ affinity group for alumni.
Awards and Membership Task Force
The Awards and Membership Task Force is actively recruiting members for the board for the upcoming academic year. If you are interested in joining the Alumni Association Board, please submit this questionnaire.
Student Mentoring Program Task Force
