Alumni Association

Graduates from Roosevelt University join a distinguished group of alumni, including the late mayor Harold Washington and jazz musician Ramsey Lewis. All graduates of Roosevelt University, the former Chicago Musical College, the former Central YMCA College, and former students who have completed at least two semesters are considered alumni of Roosevelt University.

Members of the Alumni Association receive the following benefits:

  • Short-term medical insurance
  • Career counseling and resume referral services at no charge
  • Reduced rates for selected audited, non-credit courses
  • Reduced-cost cultural, educational, and social activities
  • Library privileges at the Chicago and Schaumburg campuses
  • Use of computer labs at all three RU buildings during hours buildings are open to the public.
  • Regular issues of Roosevelt Review, the alumni magazine
  • Membership to Roosevelt University’s fitness centers.
  • A 10% discount at the RU Bookstore (with the exception of textbooks)
  • Invitations to alumni programs and events in Chicago and beyond, including the signature annual Alumni Weekend.

From time to time, the University may ask alumni to answer surveys concerning their experiences as a student at Roosevelt. The answers provided on these surveys help the University provide the best possible academic and co-curricular experiences for our current students. Alumni are urged to respond to these questionnaires and give the University and current students the benefi t of their experience.
