Featured Club: Northwestern University's Alumni Club

Northwestern's UK Club is this year's US Alumni Quiz Champs! In March, they beat out 10 other teams for the top spot. The Wildcats won £200 cash for a Club event (courtesy of Tanager Wealth and US Alumni Club) and the winning team members received a free round of cocktails and popcorn (donated by Stax Diner). Pictures of Quiz Night found here.



In addition to their quiz-pertise, the Club recently hosted Northwestern History Professor Deborah Cohen, a historian of modern Britain and Europe, who gave the group a talk on Adoption and Illegitimacy in Modern Britain.  The event was very well received by alums, and the Club looks forward to hosting more like this (all Wildcats are welcome)!

The Club is excited to pair up with other US Alumni Club members for interesting programming (or just to get to know them).

And so are we, Northwestern!

The Marquette and University of Wisconsin-Madison Clubs have partnered for a number of events in London. The relationship stems from the fact that both Universities are located in the state of Wisconsin (and it doesn't hurt that the Club Leaders are friends).

They joined forces last year to pay tribute to Marquette alumnusJames Foley, a war correspondent who was tragically killed in Syria.

The event raised £2,000 for Jim’s memorial scholarship at Marquette. Well-known journalist Vaughan Smith gave a compelling talk about the importance of freelance journalism. In attendance were two people that knew Jim personally — his friend Marco from Marquette who spent a few summers with Jim in Chicago and Shawn, a war documentary maker that spent time with Jim in London. 


People of all ages attended — from students to grandfathers, of different nationalities and affiliations — all brought together for this event. 

The common denominator was Jim.
