The House with a Heart: The Cleone Peterson Eccles Alumni House 

An outstanding university deserves an outstanding alumni headquarters

It’s no secret that the U is becoming increasingly recognized for its academic, health care, research and athletics programs, as well as for its significant economic impact on the state. Alumni, faculty, students, and community members who engage with the U Alumni Association and spend time at the Alumni House recognize the value of the work done within its walls. They see that, after 36 years, the current Alumni House is struggling to keep up with the pace and needs of a rapidly growing, Pac-12 university.
