LFA Alumni

Thank you for your enthusiastic participation at our events during the 2020-21 school year. While the landscape of our program was different this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were still able to engage with hundreds of alumni across the country and around the world. We held Zoom gatherings with alumni in London and Hong Kong; enjoyed a virtual Young Alumni Coffee with our college-era alumni; networked with students and alumni at the Josh Rothstein Young Alumni Networking Night; assembled affinity group alumni-student gatherings; and engaged more than 200 community members over two nights at the “Live from the Third Coast: LFA in the Entertainment Industry” event. Additionally, we held two town halls with our Head of School and members of the LFA faculty; took our capstone Alumni Weekend & Reunion event online to a global audience in the fall; and celebrated the 15th anniversary of our Chicago Networking Event (CNE) with a panel of Extraordinary Women. We look forward to bringing back our events in person for the 2021-22 school year, starting with an in-person Reunion in September 2021, College Dinner Series events around the country throughout the year, and regional events in NYC, Boston, Denver, Florida and more! 

This website is for YOU. Here, you can browse the list of upcoming alumni celebrations both in Chicago and around the country. You can submit a class note to the magazine or read the Review online. You can learn about volunteer opportunities at LFA through the Alumni Advisory Board or volunteer your time and energy to host--or help--at an event.
