About the Chico State Alumni Association

We are proudly introducing the new Chico State Alumni Association—a program aimed to link alumni, students, and the University. As an alum of Chico State, you are automatically part of it!

The new Chico State Alumni Association is even better than before. True to the Chico Experience, the new association is different from what many other universities offer, and ensures a lasting connection to the beautiful Chico State campus and the students whose lives it changes.

NO annual dues. Everyone is now a member. No more worrying about paying dues year after year. Instead, we are channeling our efforts to provide you with valuable programming. Even better, alumni still receive special benefits and communications.

EVERYONE is a member. It isn’t just for alumni anymore. It’s for the whole Chico State family—alumni, students, faculty, and staff. We joyfully welcome students, our future alumni, as a part of our family on their first day on campus.

The traditional idea of a members-only club no longer fits at Chico State, and we know alumni are hardly alone as passionate supporters of the University. So we’ve decided to go all in, expand the association, and focus on providing services of true value to our alumni.

Chico State Alumni Association programs will focus on:

  • Strengthening our CONNECTIONS with each other.
  • Showcasing PRIDE for Chico State.
  • Spreading SUPPORT of Chico State through volunteering, advocating, and giving.

On campus, we’ve already reorganized and refocused our efforts to support the new association. New programs are in the works. There are new and enhanced benefits, career resources, opportunities to connect with Wildcats regionally, and so much more. And of course, you’ll continue to receive our e-newsletter, Connected, each month and Chico Statements magazine biannually.
