The Western alumni network is truly a global community which I’ve benefited from, particularly as I've navigated living in both Toronto and New York City. It's my anchor, connecting me with old friends and new faces alike. Through events, online platforms, and local chapters, it's a constant source of support, professionally and personally. Plus, it's where I give back, volunteering and mentoring, making a difference while staying connected to my alma mater.

Public health grad Jeffrey Chong

Jeffrey Chong, MPH’23, returned to school after a two-year break in the professional world.

Bridget Ofosu-Andam, BA’23

Vice-Chair, Black at Western Alumni (BAWA) Chapter

"Being actively involved in BAWA has allowed me to contribute meaningfully to its mission -fostering connections within the vibrant Black community in London. This engagement not only deepened my connection with the Western community but also provided a valuable platform to amplify the voices of Black alumni. It has been a privilege to contribute to anti-racism initiatives on campus and I am excited to contribute to the continued success of the chapter."
