Whose AU? Our AU! Announcing the Multicultural Alumni Reunion at All-American Weekend

By Isaac Thweatt

Multicultural Reunion Save the Date

Looking for THE place to reconnect with your favorite AU college buddies, undergrad mentors, or sorority sisters? Look no further.  

Every October, All-American Weekend brings hundreds of alumni, families, students, and friends back to campus to reconnect, reflect, and reengage.

This year, the Alumni Association, in partnership with the AU Black Alumni Alliance and the AU Latino Alumni Alliance, proudly introduces the Multicultural Alumni Reunion, four unique events that highlight AU’s rich cultural and multi-ethnic alumni legacy.

The inaugural theme, “Our AU,” embraces the experience of each AU alumnus/a coming together to build new friendships across generations and to inspire alumni to nurture and invest in their AU family.

Under the leadership of alumni volunteers spanning 40 years, the Multicultural Alumni Reunion promises to be an exciting reason to come back to D.C., and back to AU.
