Our Chapter

BYU Alumni Chapters offer services and activities to keep alumni active in the life of the university today and to connect you with your wealth of experiences from your time at BYU. There are Regional Chapters (based on where you live), College & Professional Chapters (aligned with your degree, college, or department at BYU) and BYU Management Society. All Chapters have one purpose - to be True Blue.

They connect alumni with students (mentoring, internships, employment opportunities, replenishment grants).

They connect alumni with each other (networking, career and professional development, social activites).

They enlarge the Spirit of the Y (community recognition, service projects, newsletters).

You can donate to our chapter at https://give.byu.edu/houston
