The Western Alumni Association informally began in 1900 with the first graduates of the Washington State Normal School. A class play produced for alumni in 1901 helped formalize the relationship between school and alumni. As they say, the rest is history.
Today Western Washington University has more than 100,000 living graduates. The Western Alumni Association is a private, nonprofit organization that helps keep alumni and the WWU community connected through social and volunteer opportunities, as well as continuing education. We also provided more than $116,000 in scholarships to deserving students since 2010.
Washington State has emerged as one of the finest wine-producing regions in the world. What many don’t know is that Western Washington University alumni, family and friends have been part of this exciting success story. The Western Alumni Association invites you to join these and other vintners in exploring and celebrating this achievement.
We hope you enjoy this new membership benefit. Vino per tutti!*
*Wine for everyone!
