Cleary Alumni and Friends Center



Founded in 1969, the Alumni Association supports the university by building and maintaining relationships among students, alumni, friends, and the university. These lifelong relationships are the heart and soul of our program.


The association has hosted hundreds of events throughout the world. Currently, UW-L alumni live in all fifty states and in 57 different countries. The activities and services provided by the association are funded primarily from membership dues. Any former student, graduate, faculty, staff, parent, or friend is welcome to join.


In addition to working with the three academic colleges, alumni networks, and other affinity groups, the association also sponsors many programs for currently enrolled students. Some of these include, the etiquette dinner, Countdown to Commencement, and Legacy Scholarships. Currently enrolled students may get involved as Student Alumni Ambassadors.


Our goal is to create a lifetime connection with the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. The UW-L Alumni Association. For you. For La Crosse. For a lifetime.
