Alumni Diversity

The diversity of SDSU is best exemplified by our more than 300,000 alumni living and working in the San Diego region, throughout California, across the United States, and around the world. 

Although we represent a vast range of cultures, backgrounds, professions, and skills, SDSU alumni share a common Aztec spirit no matter where life's adventures take us.

The mission of the SDSU Alumni Association is to help maintain a life-long connection between the university and its alumni.  We accomplish this by offering a variety of ways for alumni to involve themselves with SDSU to any extent they wish.

The Alumni Association Affinity Groups

San Diego State Univeristy has a wide array of diverse alumni chapters.  Stay connected to fellow alumni to SDSU and the greater community. Each volunteer-led affinity group sponsors/hosts mixers, cultural initiatives, game-watching parties, receptions, and educational programs throughout the year.

The affinity groups welcome your involvement. Your participation increases your opportunities to network and meet Aztecs all over the World. Your fellow alums could be your next business partner, friend, co-worker, vendor, or workout buddy.
