GOLD serves as an outlet for recent graduates to connect in an environment that fosters career advancement, network expansion, and philanthropic awareness.


To build a community of recent St. John’s alumni by creating a welcoming environment to share ideas and experiences that add value beyond our time as students. We help guide the transition between college and career through professional networking, social programming, and service opportunities.

We aim to serve as a resource for all recent alumni with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and career paths in their continued personal and professional growth. GOLD aspires to be the foundation for a lifelong relationship between recent alumni and St. John’s University.

GOLD provides many opportunities for young alumni to expand their network through value-added experiences and creative programs. From professional development and networking events, cultural outings and happy hours, service and community events, and sporting-related programs, our goal is to allow GOLD alumni to grow their affinity with St. John’s and with one another.

COMMUNITY A place that fosters camaraderie, builds relationships, and provides opportunities for connection. Through our commonality as recent St. John’s alumni, we empower our members to create meaningful bonds with each other, current students, the University, fellow alumni, and our beloved New York City neighborhood.
