Alumni Association

Welcome home!

If you're an alumnus, community member, current or potential student, or just plain curious, we're so glad IU & IU East have made an impression on you! Did you know that the alumni association isn't only for alumni? It's for people with a love for IU, IU East, and the community that makes us family.

The IU Alumni Association East Region is about keeping you engaged with this family through RadIUs (our alumni magazine), events (like Homecoming, Run with the Wolves 5K, athetics watch parties, and networking opportunities!), scholarships for the next generation of alums, the latest IU & IU East news, and the amazing benefits and services that come with IU Alumni Association membership.

Who are we?

IU East has over 10,000 living alumni. Most reside within our 25-county service area in Indiana and Ohio. We boast alumni in almost every state and several countries abroad. Our alumni are teachers, business persons, nurses, public servants, doctors, lawyers, artists, and entrepreneurs. Every May, we proudly welcome our new members into the association with confidence that they will carry on our IU East tradition of excellence. We encourage all of our alumni, new and not so new, to remember their experiences at East by attending alumni and campus events, volunteering to serve, and taking part in alumni programs.

Don't hesitate to contact our office with any questions you have about our alumni program and the great work we do serving students, alumni, and the community. We welcome any news you'd like to share with our fellow alumni. Come visit your campus anytime. We've changed a lot in the past 50 years, and we have much for which we are proud.
