Gold conducts heat and electricity. Gold is precious, sought after, mined, forged and fashioned into treasure. You are GOLD — you ignite an energy that fuels the pride and passion of the Vandal community.
Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) is what we call U of I young alumni. The goal is for alumni volunteers and Office of Alumni Relations staff to ease the transition from college life to work world and build the connection between our newest graduates and the institution all while helping you tap into a powerful network of alumni. Not to mention have some fun along the way.
A Vandal GOLD Advisory Council is in development with a mission to advocate on your behalf. This committee seeks individuals motivated to build passion and pride among our young grads by advising on programs, events and engagement initiatives.
