As one of the School’s most engaged alumni networks, we have chapters in cities across the country. Our chapters actively organize events, share job openings, and post news and relevant information through social media.

Joining the Wood Center

The Wood Center provides real estate alumni with regular opportunities to connect across the country and around the globe. We maintain a mailing list solely for the Wood Center which is comprised of alumni and friends of our program. Reminders and invitations to our annual real estate conference are sent through our mailing list.
