Affinity Groups

AOG Affinity Groups are communities of USAFA alumni that actively communicate or gather around a shared affinity or bond.

Affinity groups will generally fall into three categories:

  • Identity-Based: i.e., Way of Life, The Blue Alliance, Academy Women, etc.
  • Interest/Career-Based: i.e., rated group, engineers, small business owners, entrepreneurs, etc.
  • Cadet Experience-Based: i.e., Drum and Bugle alumni, Honor Guard alumni, Wings of Blue alumni, other sport/club team alumni, etc.

Groups interested in recognition as an Affinity Group must apply for formal status with the AOG and be wholly in line with the mission, goals, policies, and objectives of USAFA and the AOG do not compete with any other group of a similar nature.

We'd love to hear from you! Contact Barbara Rosenheim for any issues or suggestions.
