With more than 13,000 Syracuse University alumni and nearly 2,000 Whitman School alumni living and working in the Boston area, the city is home to a large SU population that continues to stay closely involved with the University community. Boston-based graduates of Syracuse’s online and on-campus programs consistently open professional doors for each other in the fields of management, finance, and arts and sciences, and they host events like networking happy hours, industry panel discussions and new student send-offs about once a month.
Alumni Networking in Boston
With such a high concentration of Syracuse University graduates in the Boston area, networking can be a great resource for alumni looking for a job, considering a career change, or just seeking career advice.
The SU Alumni Club of Boston hosts a variety of events in the city and surrounding areas of Massachusetts to help fellow graduates meet, network, and get involved in the community. The club is also always looking for new alumni to join—whether in a leadership position or to assist with general support tasks.
Boston Alumni Events
Past alumni events in the Boston area have included happy hours, talks from Syracuse professors, and even nights out to watch the home teams, like the Boston Celtics. During the first Wednesday of every month, alumni get together for “ACC After Hours,” an informal networking opportunity with all Boston-area Atlantic Coast Conference alumni.

The Boston Regional Council is a group of dedicated alumni, parents, friends, and business leaders whose goal is to elevate Syracuse University’s presence in the Boston metro area. The council works to recruit new students, build a stronger philanthropic base, expand career networking opportunities, and develop academic programs. Alumni from a variety of professional backgrounds—from finance, to pediatrics, to pharmaceuticals—serve on the council.
