Chicago Alumni Network


Welcome to the Windy City!

The Chicago Network of the University of Maryland Alumni Association is one of the newest and fastest-growing networks in the country, tapping into a pool of hundreds of Maryland graduates in the Chicago area.

Whether you’re a recent transplant or a Chicago native, a university alum or just a passionate Terp fan, we hope to be a resource for you in Chicago to connect with others and celebrate our ties to the university.

As the first Maryland Alumni network to be chartered in the Midwest — in the city that's home to more Big Ten alumni than any other — we’re on the front lines of one of the biggest changes in the university’s history. The members of our network are excited to engage with others in the Chicago community and all of the Midwest and to represent our alma mater proudly.
