Shimer College

Alumni Association

All Alums of Shimer are automatically members of the Association — congrats! — but it is up to you to decide how to best contribute.

The Shimer College Alumni Association is up and running and we are looking for Alums who would like to be involved. 

Attend Events: Alums are always welcome to attend events at Shimer and in various areas of the country. Check the upcoming events section for a listing of upcoming events.

Discussion/Social Groups: We encourage alums to form discussion/social groups that meet regularly and discuss readings. If you are currently holding a group and would like us to list it in our upcoming events section or if you would like help in forming your own group please let us know.

Help Planning Events: We are always looking for help planning events such as receptions and discussion/social groups. You can help by providing a space, helping to set up a place, or also connecting with other alums to get the word out.

Board of Directors: The Association is also still looking for alums who would be willing to serve on the Association’s Board. The Directors represent and help connect Alums to the Association and Shimer, as well as help plan and organize events for their region and the Association.

If you want to get involved in the new Alumni Association or want more information about how you can help, contact Isabella Winkler at
