Annual Activities

Be an Alumnus for a Day: This campaign was designed to give students an idea of ways to stay involved with campus after they graduate and how they can utilize the alumni network. Students are given the opportunity to interact with alumni at events centered on professional development, volunteerism and social networking. 

Maize and Blue Bowl: Created by GOLD, this flag football game is a staple of Homecoming Week and features a matchup between alumni and students.

Recent Graduate BBQ: Each May, GOLD hosts this barbecue to welcome new graduates and their guests to the UM-Dearborn alumni family. All alumni are invited to join in the celebration of our growing alumni community.
