HISTORY OF LA SALLE’S ALUMNI ASSOCIATION


Since its inception in 1916, La Salle University’s Alumni Association has had a rich and colorful history and has fostered an ongoing relationship between the University and its alumni.

Today, the Association continues to cultivate and foster good will and camaraderie among its membership, promotes the interest and general welfare of La Salle University, and maintains and advances the causes of higher education.

The Alumni Association achieves its objectives by developing or contributing to programs and services that provide direct benefit to the alumni body as well as to the University. Such programs include alumni award and recognition programs, affinity service programs, Homecoming and Reunion events, alumni chapter organizations, and others.

Of particular impact is the financial support that the Association generates for La Salle by raising and contributing thousands of dollars each year to the Brother Patrick Ellis Alumni Scholarship Fund. The Association also helps in the recruitment of alumni volunteers who can offer important assistance to both the Association and to the University.

Due to people’s unselfish efforts, we are pleased to share the following important milestones in La Salle’s Alumni Association history.
