Young Alumni Club (YAC)

Upcoming Events:

The Young Alumni Club (YAC), a component of the Alumni
Association of NJIT, is an active organization of volunteers that
plans and sponsors gatherings for alumni who have graduated
approximately within the last 10 years.  Our events are designed 
variously for singles, couples and families.

To Join the YAC Steering Committee:

We welcome new members. We meet approximately every six weeks at Eberhardt Hall for less than two hours to brainstorm, plan events, and spread the work around so no one person is overburdened. 

If you would like to join us, or if you have event ideas you would like to share, please email our chair.
