The Academy offers a wide variety of engagement opportunities to keep alumni informed about the school and connected to fellow graduates. We hope you will join us on campus and around the country for one of our many gatherings. We continue to host both in-person and virtual events to serve our alumni near and far.

During the fall 2021, we hosted an alumni vs. students soccer match; regional receptions in Florida and NYC; several College Dinner Series events; and, of course, our Alumni Weekend & Reunion gathering on campus. During the spring semester 2022, we offered events in Minnesota and Arizona, along with our popular Young Alumni Networking Night, Young Alumni Lunch, and Alumni Advisory Board (AAB) meeting on campus. We also hosted a virtual panel on the topic of venture capital with alumni experts in the field. In addition, we welcomed many alumni back to campus to speak with our students about their careers and their experiences post-LFA and to engage with students in our cultural affinity groups.

We look forward to another year of activities that engage and inspire you, our alumni. We have plans to visit Florida, NYC, Boston, and California during the 2022-23 school year.
