Our Story

The community began in 2005 as a loose affiliation of US university alumni club leaders in London. They gathered periodically to share ideas and resources. As the network grew over the years, a more formal organisation was needed. In 2014, US Alumni Club was born with the mission to create an international community of university alumni, offering social and networking opportunities to help members thrive.
