Affinity Partners

The UVa-Wise Alumni Association has partnered with several companies who offer something of value to our alumni. The Alumni Association receives a portion of the revenues generated by these programs, which is then used to fund alumni programs and services. By participating in these programs, you can show your Cavalier pride and also support your alma mater and the Alumni Association.
