DC Terps Alumni Network

DC Terps Alumni Network

This network is for all alumni who live in Washington, D.C. and the surrounding suburbs and any Terps who work in the greater D.C. area. There are many Terps who commute from Maryland and Virginia, and we’d love for you to join us at our events.

We have hosted game watches, social happy hours, community service events, professional development and networking opportunities. In the past, we have hosted events with the Nationals, game watches at Lou’s City Bar (1400 Irving St. NW), and service events with DC Central Kitchen.
