Join the Community

Northwestern recently launched a new online community to connect alumni, students, faculty, parents, and staff. This University-exclusive platform, called Our Northwestern, is currently being introduced to the NU community.


After completing an Our Northwestern profile, you’ll be able to network with friends and colleagues, create or join groups catered to your personal and professional interests, access the alumni directory, and interact with the entire university community.


The community is now in the beta phase.


Please follow @OurNorthwestern on Twitter for updates and announcements.


Connecting is Simple
