Northwest Alumni Association

A Message from the Director

Greetings, Bearcats,

FrBob Machovskyom one Bearcat to another, I welcome you home to Northwest Missouri State University and your Northwest Alumni Association. Alumni and friends of Northwest make up a large and impressive network of over 80,000 strong. One thing that connects us all is our strong affinity toward all things that are associated with Bearcat Nation. I thank each of you for your support and hope you will help Northwest continue to mentor, connect, promote and inform thousands of Bearcats new and old.

You may be wondering how you can stay connected with such a large network of Bearcats. Look through our website to learn about all the exciting events and opportunities developed to help you stay engaged and involved with Northwest. You can volunteer at your favorite alumni event, or attend a Northwest chapter watch party or social. The possibilities are endless.  

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will be connecting soon with other Bearcats through a variety of options and your Alumni Association. I encourage you to stop in and see us at the Alumni House anytime you find yourself in Maryville.

Remember. “Once a Bearcat, always a Bearcat.”

Forever Green,

Bob Machovsky

A message from the President

Dustin Wasson

Dear Northwest Alumni and Friends,

Welcome to the Northwest Alumni Association website!  On behalf of the alumni association, its board of directors and more than 80,000 alumni, I invite you to explore our website and learn how you can connect, mentor and promote Northwest Missouri State University.

Membership to the alumni association is free and starts as soon as you graduate.

It’s easy to stay connected with 22 alumni and friends chapters across the United States and Japan.  Local chapters give an opportunity for alumni and friends to connect through various events each year.  I invite you to attend a chapter event or return to campus and enjoy a sporting or cultural event.  It’s a great time to be a Bearcat!

When you are back on campus, please stop by the Michael L. Faust Center for Alumni and Friends to say hello and find out how to get involved with the alumni association.  If you should have any questions please contact the alumni staff at 660-562-1248 or

Thanks for visiting the alumni association website, I hope to see you on campus or at a chapter event soon.

Go Bearcats!
