Since the establishment of North California and Southern California PKU Alumni Association in 1985, 15 regional alumni associations have been established consecutively in the United States. Inheriting the spirit of Patriotism, Progress, Democracy, and Science of Peking University, they have made great contributions to the Alma Mater, China¨s national modernization and reunification progress. In the past 20 years, PKUAAs have played an important part in bridging alumni home and abroad, and strengthening academic or civilian exchanges between China and US. Assisting PKU alumni in US to merge into the mainstream society, it is an important information hinge for their studying, working and living life in US, and it has become home and harbor for all PKU alumni there.
