Welcome to the Neighborhood!

This fall, your local RISD Alumni Clubs invite you to meet your alumni neighbors! We’ll have some fun, get to know each other, exchange insights and resources for living in the area and share professional tips and career wisdom over food and drinks.

As a RISD graduate, you’re part of a network of over 31,000 alumni. So, whether you’re a recent grad, just moved to a new city or looking to meet some new RISD friends, we hope you’ll connect with your alumni club this September.
