AU and University Honors | Reconnect

The University Honors Program is dedicated to fostering a lifelong community of scholars.

There are several ways an Honors Alum can reconnect with the program:

Honors on Facebook

Once reconnected, stay connected. Join our Honors Alumni Facebook Group and our Honors Fan Page to receive major program updates, find out information on reunion and networking events, and rediscover old friendships.

Reunion/Networking Events

The University Honors Program encourages its Honors graduates to participate in the many networking opportunities sponsored by American University throughout the year, including those hosted by the AU Career Center in cooperation with AU schools and colleges. Connect with students, fellow alumni, faculty, staff and employers, while enjoying complimentary hors d'oeuvres and other refreshments. Please check the alumni events calendar for upcoming networking and social opportunities.

Become a Mentor

One of the best ways Honors alumni can contribute to the University Honors Program is by devoting some time to mentor a current Honors student. Alumni interest and input are invaluable to our students. Alumni mentors report their experience is personally rewarding, too.

Mentoring arrangements are flexible and created to suit both the alumni mentor and student. With Honors students eager to connect with Honors alums, we hope you will consider becoming a mentor. Please contact the Honors Office for more information.


One great way to show appreciation for your experience in Honors is to share it with the next generation through a financial contribution in any amount to the University Honors Program.

You can be sure that Honors will make full use of your contribution to continue to foster the special learning community that you experienced as a member of the University Honors Program.
