Welcome to the Washington, DC Alumni website

Our mission is to organize events and programming, connect alumni with other alumni, share knowledge, and serve the university such as helping to recruit prospective students.

Please take advantage of our wide range of events and opportunities:

  • Attend cultural events and faculty seminars
  • Connect with 3,000+ alumni in the metro area
  • Grow professionally and further your career
  • Get involved and develop your leadership skills
  • Socialize with your friends and meet recent graduates
  • Play on one of our five sport teams

About the Chapter Leadership

The chapter's alumni leadership team draws upon a mix of alumni from the days of Carnegie Tech to recent graduates. The chapter leaders and members of the chapter committees represent every school and several different decades from the 1960's to 2000's.
