Building Relationships for Life: 150 Years of the University of Illinois Alumni Association

Join our Speaker Series on April 25, 2024, at 6:30 p.m. CT for an empowering session with Ryan A. Ross, Building Relationships for Life: 150 Years of the University of Illinois Alumni Association.

On June 5, 1873, Illinois’ original graduating class met in the campus’ Mechanic and Military Hall, with one objective: to create an alumni association. “Building Relationships for Life”—that’s our motto, and over the past 150 years, the University of Illinois Alumni Association has strived to achieve it in everything we do. Join Ryan A. Ross, our Director of History and Traditions Programs, for a whirlwind, virtual tour through 150 years of the UIAA, from its founding to its role in organizing Homecoming, establishing alumni clubs, relocating the Alma Mater, creating the U of I’s heritage museum, and much, much more.
