About the National Alumni Association

The mission of Drake University's National Alumni Association is to engage alumni in a lifelong connection to the Drake experience by encouraging relationships among alumni, encouraging relationships with the University, and promoting pride in Drake. Membership to the association is free—you're a member as soon as you cross the stage at graduation—and the benefits are numerous.

Each year, with the help our National Alumni Board, regional advisory boards, and our alumni staff, the organization plans myriad events to bring together Drake alumni living around the globe. To find out what's happening in your city, check out our upcoming events listing.

The association keeps alumni up-to-date with campus news through Drake Blue; eBlue, the monthly alumni electronic newsletter; and our password-protected online community where alumni submit class notes, find former classmates or alumni in their area, and update their information with the Office of Alumni Relations.
