Is it alumni or alumnus? Alumna? Alumnae? Help!

Disclaimer: Many of the terms we use to describe graduates of a school or university are gendered in nature due to the origins of the terms in Latin. We aim to be sensitive to a wide range of gender identities and pronouns when referring to another person or group of people. We encourage everyone to use words and pronouns they are most comfortable with.

Here’s a handy guide:

  • Alumni: a group of graduates -- regardless of gender. (There are nearly 4,000 alumni of Brandeis International Business School around the world.)
  • Alumna: one individual female graduate of a school. (NAME is an alumna of Brandeis International Business School.
  • Alumnus: one individual male graduate of a school. (NAME is an alumnus of Brandeis International Business School.)
  • Alumnae: multiple female-identified graduates of a school. (NAME, NAME, AND NAME alumnae of Brandeis International Business School. They are also alumni of Brandeis International Business School.)
  • Alum: singular term for any gender used similarly to “alumnus” or ”alumna.” (I am now an alum of Brandeis International Business School. NAME is an alum of Brandeis International Business School. NAME is an alum of Brandeis International Business School.)
  • Incorrect usage:
    • “NAME is an alumni of Brandeis International Business School.” 
      • This is incorrect because alumni is a plural term.
      • The correct usage would be “NAME is an alumnus of Brandeis International Business School” or “NAME is an alum of Brandeis International Business School.”
Who can I keep in touch with after I graduate?

Well, to be honest, we encourage you to keep in touch with anyone who made an impact on you while you were here. But there is one office that works exclusively with alumni and really enjoys hearing from graduates no matter when they graduated. You can reach out at any time with news, questions, offers of support -- anything! Feel free to email one of us below or our main inbox at businessalumni@brandeis.edu.
