Join an alumni chapter
Take part in NAU alumni events and activities
Being involved in a chapter means that you are actively participating in the events and activities NAU and the alumni chapter host. As a member, you will receive information about various events, chapter and university updates, newsletters, and potential benefits or discounts to events in your area. Chapter members can choose which events they wish to attend and provide feedback to chapter leaders in their area about desired programming and engagement opportunities.
Alumni chapter fees, dues, and benefits
There are no fees or dues associated with being a chapter member. However, there may be activities with added benefits to chapter members who donate to the university. You’re welcome to make a donation to NAU online anytime.
