Alumni Organizations

Alumni groups and chapters offer a wide variety of opportunities to connect online, network, socialize and volunteer. The Oxy alumni community embraces the diversity of our backgrounds, experiences, and passions. Oxy's affinity groups help alumni connect around shared interests such as faith, ethnicity, or activities. 

What are alumni organizations?

Affinity Organizations

Oxy's alumni affinity groups offer a community built around a particular interest or affiliation. Affinity groups host mixers and seminars, provide mentoring opportunities and leadership positions, and give members an opportunity to stay connected to the college and each other.

Fifty Year Club:

Each year, hundreds of alumni are inducted into Fifty Year Club in celebration of their achievements since Commencement fifty years ago. Alumni from across the country, and world, travel back to Oxy to reunite with old friends, connect with new ones, and honor distinguished faculty and alumni. As members of Fifty Year Club, alumni continually seek to involve themselves within the greater Occidental College community. 

Regional Engagement Committees: 

The mission of these regional committees is to provide opportunities for alumni and parents to maintain an active and on-going affiliation among themselves and with the college. The alumni office works closely with alumni/parent volunteers to help facilitate and plan engaging events that in return foster a greater network of Oxy Tigers, which is so important! We currently have active alumni and parent committees in the San Francisco Bay Area, Portland, Seattle, New York, and DC.  Interested in getting involved in an active committee or want to start one in your area?
