Any AU alumnus/a who graduated in the last 10 years and lives in the DC metro area is welcome to join the Young Alumni Chapter. The YAC sponsors social, cultural, and professional events and works with other alumni groups in creating meaningful programs to enrich the lives of young alumni.  We also participate in alumni sports programs through the Capital Alumni Network.
