New York City Alumni Chapter

Whether you are an Elon alumni, parent, or friend of the University, this site is here to keep you up to date on what’s happening with the Elon Alumni Association in the New York City area.

Message From the President

The New York City Alumni Chapter was established with a mission to build stronger relationships between Elon alumni and the University, as well as amongst the alumni in New York City. The Alumni Chapter aims to help alumni, parents, and friends of the University stay connected to the Elon community by keeping them informed about developments at Elon and through events hosted in New York City.

In the coming months you will notice a number of new initiatives undertaken by the local Alumni Chapter Board including a refocusing of our programs, improved communications, and an renewed commitment to our Alumni (both in the City and in surrounding areas). This website is a pivotal step in executing these new initiatives.

We welcome your friends and family to join us at an upcoming event and come see why the New York City Alumni Chapter is the best in the country!

Long live Elon!
