Alumni Association 2017 Highlights

Thank you to our members and donors who have made it possible for the UAAA to build an active and engaged alumni community committed to advancing the university. You support helps us provide scholarships to students, expand our Career Lab, support student retention, and improve our campus landscape with legacy benches. We also celebrate a nearly $400,000 gift from the class of 1967.

Scroll the page to learn more about this year's highlights — Gallup poll results, welcoming UA President Robert C. Robbins, and the Alumni Heritage Society launch. 


Happy, Healthy, Successful Wildcats

UA produces happier, healthier and more successful graduates who remain more emotionally attached to their alma mater than graduates from peer universities. Results from the Gallup Survey show that UA alumni are significantly more likely than graduates from other universities to be thriving in each element of well-being — purpose, social, financial, community and physical.
