Mission statement

Blue Coat Alumni Network

Welcome to the UWG Blue Coats Alumni Network, where the spirit of ambassadorship and stewardship lives on! We understand that the Blue Coat journey is unlike any other, and it's a story best shared with fellow alumni who have donned the blue blazer themselves. 

Our community serves as a bridge between past and present, offering opportunities for alumni of all backgrounds to come together. Whether you're an established professional or embarking on your post-graduate journey, our community offers a place to share your wisdom, relive cherished memories, and contribute to the ongoing narrative of the Blue Coats. Together, we will continue to enhance the UWG Blue Coats Alumni Network, fostering connections and nurturing the spirit of our alma mater.

All Blue Coat alumni are welcomed and encouraged to participate no matter when they attended UWG!
