What is the WUOG Alumni Association?
The mission of the WUOG Alumni Association is to create a culture of engagement among former station volunteers. Serving as a booster organization to existing station initiatives, the organization is dedicated to supplying the current student volunteers with a wide resource pool and an active alumni population.
Things that the association does: provides a support network for WUOG operations, helps organize annual multi-city meet-ups for WUOG Alumni, helps to reconnect alumni with each other, helps the current station staff get advice and training from alums, etc. Read more about what we’ve been up to by visiting the News blog or checking out our previous annual report.
