Young Alumni

If you're a graduate of the last decade, you're in GOLD, Augustana University's young alumni group. We host events designed exclusively for you and your needs during your first years after Augustana, led by a team of your peers known as the GOLD Advisory Council.

GOLD Advisory Council members advise the Augustana Alumni Association and Alumni Council on events, promotions and philanthropy, as well as other areas that are of concern to their peers. GOLD hosts social, networking and community service events throughout the year. Meet the GOLD Council.
