Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD)

North Park University’s Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) program creates opportunities for young alumni to stay connected with one another following graduation, provides access to services for professional advancement, and hosts social and networking events throughout the year.

A GOLD volunteer committee meets quarterly to plan events and assists in developing resources for GOLD alumni. Previous GOLD events have included a sold-out dinner at Hopleaf Bar, a jazz concert in Millennium Park, and the annual GOLD reunion at Homecoming each fall. If you are interested in joining the GOLD committee, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations for more information.

So I just graduated. Now what?

Congratulations on becoming a GOLD member of the North Park University Alumni Association! We invite you to learn more about the benefits and resources available to you as a recent graduate, and hope you’ll keep in touch. Here are some common questions we receive, along with answers that you may find helpful.

Stay Connected: North Park Connect

Access to North Park Connect, our online alumni community, is a resource available to all alumni. The online directory feature may be used to connect with fellow alumni and is searchable by name, class year, location, and industry.

If you’ve moved, accepted a new job, completed an additional degree, gotten married, or have other updates to your alumni profile, we encourage you to visit North Park Connect to make those changes at any time.
