WKU Alumni Association is dependent on the membership
of its alumni to
be able to provide the programs and events that you enjoy.
Why Membership Matters
Though all those who graduate from WKU are alumni, not all are members of the WKU Alumni Association.
WKU Alumni Association encourages alumni to develop strong ties with
each other and the University through a mix of programs and activities,”
said, Rick DuBose, Alumni Association Executive Director. “Our work
also helps further the University’s mission and vision. The continued
vitality of the Alumni Association depends on the commitment of time,
energy and resources of our alumni base.”
alum Ashley (Parker) Mitchell (’09,’14), recently became a Lifetime
Member of the WKU Alumni Association. “I think it is important for
Alumni to be involved in the WKU Alumni Association in order to give
back to the University and stay connected with others who share the same
interests and passions as you do,” she said. “WKU gave me my degree,
which gave me a job, so I feel compelled to give back so other students
and future Alumni can have the same amazing experiences I had at WKU.”
support allows the Alumni Association to continue to provide important
programs, like the Alumni Chapter Network, Homecoming activities,
reunions, career connections, student programming, tailgating and
regional events, and recognition opportunities such as the Summit Awards
and the Hall of Distinguished Alumni. In addition, the Alumni
Association is exploring new and exciting ways to support career and
professional development for members.
In appreciation, members of the WKU Alumni Association receive membership privileges that include:
- Discounts at the WKU Store, on Continuing Education Programs and on admission to select Alumni Association chapter events
- Access to affinity partnership discounts on services that include life, health, auto, and homeowners insurance
- Full print and digital access to all issues of the award-winning WKU SPIRIT magazine
importantly, your support of the WKU Alumni Association allows us to
achieve our most important objectives of engaging our alumni, building
added-value for your WKU degree and providing important career and
networking services to our constituents,” DuBose said. “Though your time
as a student lasts a very short time, you are a Hilltopper forever.
