Phoenix Young Alumni Club

The Phoenix Young Alumni Club (PYAC) is an official club of the UA Alumni Association whose mission is to bring young alumni together to promote Wildcat pride in the Phoenix area. PYAC does this by hosting a variety of events, including:

  • UA sports viewing parties
  • Professional events
  • Happy hours

How We Operate

PYAC is managed by a board of directors, a small group of UA alumni volunteers who meet once a month and plan all events. It is the commitment of the board to operate under the three P's of PYAC:

  1. Professionalism We maintain a professional attitude, keeping in mind that we represent the UA Alumni Association and University 
  2. Promotion We continuously promote PYAC and its events to all UA alums in hopes to bring young alumni together
  3. Participation — We volunteer for and attend club events, and stay actively involved in board member communications/meetings to keep PYAC successfully operating


Upcoming Events

All PYAC events are open to all. There is no requirement to be an official UA Alumni Association member nor do you have to be a “young” alum. If you share a passion for the University of Arizona, we'd love to meet you. Check out our master calendar of events at
