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 and monthly happy hours at our official bar, Brownstone Tavern & Grill. 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.

We have a lot more planned for the upcoming months. Be sure to check back for more CAL events!
