Welcome, Chicago 'Dores
Welcome to the Chicago Chapter! We are a group of alumni, students, family and friends of the university. Our chapter celebrates community, collaboration and tradition associated with Vanderbilt University.
With a foundation of more than 3,000 Vanderbilt graduates in the area, the goal of the chapter is to facilitate the connection of alumni to each other, to existing and prospective students, and importantly, to the university itself. We are able to accomplish this goal through a variety of events: educational/cultural, networking/career development, athletic, community service and social. And it certainly doesn’t hurt to have the great city of Chicago and all it has to offer at our disposal!
Whether you are interested in Commodore Classrooms (university professor presentations), an outdoor community service event in the summer, or simply want to watch a game with Vanderbilt colleagues at Sedgwick’s, we hope to see you in attendance. We encourage you to connect with the community online through VUconnect and by joining our Facebook group. Also, feel free to reach out to the us directly with any questions you may have—you’ll find the chapter leadership contacts information below.
We look forward to seeing you soon, and go ‘Dores!
