Cal Alumni Club of Chicago

Connect & inspire

Welcome to Chicago!



Welcome to the Cal Alumni Club of Chicago. We are an officially chartered chapter of the Cal Alumni Association. We organize events and activities of interests to UC Berkeley alumni from all walks of life and throughout the entire Chicagoland area.

We are active year-round, coordinating social events like game watching get togethers at our official bar, Redmond's Ale House. In addition, we host and organize a variety of other volunteering, cultural, and social activities. We also coordinate with other alumni and professional groups for joint networking events and activities.

Join us and help us make Chicago Golden Bear Territory!



Join us in celebrating the Golden Bear spirit at our events.

Cal Football

Come join us at our home bar, Redmond's Ale House (3358 N Sheffield Ave), as we cheer on our beloved California Golden Bears each week. Wear your blue and gold and get ready to sing a few rounds of the fight song! Appetizers will be provided at watch parties for select games (to be announced via Facebook).
