US East Coast Alumni Association
We are pleased to introduce the newly formed UAL East Coast Alumni Association.
The UAL East Coast Alumni Association is led by a committee made up of cross college alumni representatives. Members will work together to develop an annual programme of events and activities for you. These may include social events, talks, exhibitions and gallery tours as well as gatherings to help develop your professional networks.
In February 2015 UAL was pleased to offically launch the committee at a special alumni reception in Brooklyn at the New York Foundation for the Arts.
