Los Angeles Alumni Club

Los Angeles

Join the RISD Alumni Club of Los Angeles to connect with alumni in our area. The club is run by local alumni volunteers, with support from the Office of Alumni Relations, to meet the interests of alumni in Los Angeles.

Our club organizes informal gatherings to reconnect with fellow alumni. We are eager to hear your ideas about what kind of events would most interest you! Some ideas we have include a #RISDServes volunteer project in our community to observe Founders Day (celebrating the anniversary of RISD's founding on March 22, 1877), meetups before local art and design events, informal conversations with RISD leaders, talks by prominent artists and designers, and more.

We also need people to serve as club leaders and help organize and host our activities.
Contact alumni@risd.edu to get involved!

RISD was founded on March 22, 1877 and to honor the resilient spirit of RISD's founders, alumni clubs around the world volunteer service projects in their home communities. For this project, alumni worked with Help California to clean up and rebuild properties devastated by the Woolsey and Hill fires and subsequent heavy rains. Additional photos show alumni, new students, and parents enjoying a reception at a LA Summer Welcome event where alumni welcome students to RISD.
