Affinity Networks


Affinity Networks offer opportunities for alumni of shared interests and common bonds to stay connected to Hampton and to connect with each other beyond the traditional class and regional structure. This connection can be based on identity, previous involvement with student organizations, or interests. The Hampton Office of Alumni Affairs (OAA) relies on affinity groups to assist in providing opportunities for alumni to connect to the university and to each other in ways that address these special interests and common bonds.
