Stay Connected. Your Support Matters
As the largest and oldest organization on campus, the SIU Alumni Association has been proudly serving SIU alumni and friends since 1896. It seeks to engage alumni, students, and friends of the university by preserving SIU traditions, promoting pride in an SIU education, and facilitating opportunities for students and alumni to connect professionally.
Today, the Association has continued to grow and serve as a connection between more than 250,000 alumni in every state of the U.S. and in more than 100 countries, as well as family and friends of the university. This is done by the Association playing a major role in key University functions by working with various departments across campus, including SIU Career Services, Saluki Athletics, and the Chancellor’s Office, on events and programs that support the university’s mission.
For students about to graduate, the Association puts on events like Grad Bash, a one-stop shop for all things graduation.
The Extern program matches SIU students with alumni and professionals in a number of industries and locations across the country.
Alumni who have excelled in their fields can be considered for a Distinguished Alumni Award, one of the highest honors SIU alumni can attain.
