Join us October 13-15, 2023 for WashU’s Black Alumni Weekend. Reconnect with the university community and explore St. Louis, all while celebrating the powerful legacy of Black students, faculty, staff, and alumni at WashU.

Countdown to the celebration!


Experience the magic of “Black gravity”—the magnetic sense of community among Black students at WashU—all over again as you return to the Danforth Campus with friends new and old. You won’t want to miss signature events such as the Black on the Quad Cookout and the highly anticipated Black Alumni Council 40th Anniversary Sneaker Ball. Discover today’s WashU and hear directly from university leaders about how the university engages and supports Black students, faculty, and alumni. Through presentations, tours, and panel discussions, learn about WashU’s efforts to amplify the stories and experiences of the Black WashU community and ensure their voices are heard.

Whether you graduated recently or decades ago, Black Alumni Weekend offers a chance to return to the place that connects us and celebrate our enduring bond.

Registration will open in late spring! Until then, take this quick survey to let everyone know you’re planning to attend.
