What is the Young Alumni Network?

The Young Alumni Network (YAN) was established in 2014 to keep alumni connected, engaged, and involved in their first 10 years after graduation. The YAN, along with The Chico State Alumni Association, sponsors programs and events that foster interactions and professional development among recent graduates in the Chico area.

Who is considered a young alumnus/alumna?

The YAN defines this as any person who has graduated from CSU, Chico within the past ten.  The events and activities are developed to engage this demographic, however there is no age restriction on participation.

Can my friends join me at Young Alumni events even if they did not graduate from CSU, Chico?

Of course! Guests are always welcome at events.

How do I get more involved in a leadership role within the Young Alumni Network?

The Young Alumni Network board meets once monthly. Please contact the Alumni Engagement Coordinator to find out how to get more involved.
