Greater New York Alumni Community

new york alumni community banner

Welcome to the Greater New York Alumni Community!  Did you know that there are nearly 700 Butler alumni in the Greater New York area? If you are one of us, we would love you see you at one or more of our upcoming events. We are an enthusiastic and diverse group, and our gatherings range from chocolate tastings, to music and dance performances and family-oriented gatherings, cocktail parties, baseball games, and basketball viewing parties. Did you know that, while other Butler alumni communities have adopted the annual “Martini Madness” event, the idea originated in our alumni community? Martini Madness and our other community events are the perfect opportunity to make personal and professional connections with your fellow Butler alumni, to reconnect with classmates, to hear about the latest happenings at the University, and to have fun!

Go Dawgs!
