Your Membership Matters

As 2016 comes to a close, we are giving thanks to all of our current and former CWU Alumni Association members for their support. The association has grown exponentially over the last year and half bringing on 1,800 new members. In early January, we will launch our annual membership campaign, so you may receive a mailing along with coordinating emails. This annual membership drive has proven to be a very successful way to inform Wildcats about the CWU Alumni Association, and its mission and benefits. Make sure to update your communication preferences and contact information, which may help with receiving these materials, here.


With enrollment at Central at an all-time high, your membership helps support the experience of the nearly 11,000 students who attend Central. It’s your support of the association that has helped Central continue to be recognized as one of the best value educations in the state of Washington. Current CWU students will receive help through your membership, ensuring that more students are able to reimage the world and benefit from a personalized education.


Along with aiding the student experience through programs and scholarships your membership to the Alumni Association comes with an impressive host of benefits including:


• Entrance to the hospitality areas at select athletic events
Invitations to special events and programs
Discounts in the Wildcat Shop (10% off!)

The CWU Alumni Association invites you to many social and athletic events each year, giving you access to select hospitality areas and the option to purchase discounted tickets. When you renew your membership, or join for the first time, you will play a pivotal role in preserving the CWU you know and love. Scholarships are among the ways your membership can help, providing financial support to better equip students for their studies ahead. Mentorship programs supported by the Alumni Association also assist Central students in finding a career that they are passionate about, by learning from CWU alumni in their field.

Do you know a current student attending Central? If you do, take a second to learn about the new program we have launched for current CWU students, that gives them access to a unique Alumni Association membership. The Central Washington University Student Alumni Association (SAA) was founded to bridge the gap between today’s Wildcats and CWU’s dedicated alumni. SAA encourages students to become more involved in programs around the university that celebrate the spirit and tradition of Central. Members get an exclusive t-shirt and can enjoy access to many of the same benefits as current alumni, including the Alumni Access Discount App, the Alumni Insurance program, the Alumni Travel program, Wildcat Shop discounts, and more.

If you are ready to join for the first time, or want to renew your membership, now is the perfect time. You will aid in the legacy of Central Washington student experience and receive all the benefits listed above.
