Alumni Engagement

Welcome Event for Recent Grads/Transplants

Did you just move to the Seattle area and want to meet fellow Wolverines? This awesomely social event will allow you to see old Michigan friends and make new ones who can help you get the “inside information” on our Wolverine presence in Seattle! This event will give you a chance to meet the local U-M Alumni Club board and see some of the upcoming events planned for the rest of the year. Also, you will have a chance to suggest events or initiatives you want to participate in during the upcoming year. Hearty appetizers provided by the Club, so no need to eat before coming over.

Big 10 Picnic

Come join fellow Big Ten Alums in the Seattle area for our annual Summer Picnic! Food, lawn games, and meeting other Big Ten alums…what more could you want?! Our picnic is family friendly, and dogs are allowed as long as they are on a leash. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

LGBTQ Pride Happy Hour

Join the University of Michigan Club of Seattle Tonight to kick off Seattle LGBTQ Pride Weekend with a happy hour on Wednesday, June 26! Meet us at Poco Wine + Spirits in Capitol Hill starting at 6pm. We’ve reserved a table in the dining area so look for the Michigan & rainbow flags. Please invite along other Michigan Alumni, friends, and significant others. All are welcome!

We look forward to celebrating with you!

U-M Seattle Summer Picnic

Hope you can join us for our picnic at Carkeek Park! U-M Alumni and prospective Wolverines of all ages are welcome! The club will be providing food and drink, and we’ll have activities as well! We have a beautiful location overlooking the water, with nearby trails and play areas for younger children. . E-mail Michael Roberto if any questions.

Big Ten Ballard Brewery Outing

With 11 breweries in just 5 square miles, Ballard has become a tourist destination for beer. In fact, Ballard is home to more breweries than any other Seattle or Portland neighborhood. If you include Fremont and other next door neighborhoods, there are 19 breweries!

Join your local Big Ten alums for an outing to visit five of these breweries over four hours. We’ll be stopping for 45 minutes at each location. There’s no fee to join, and no registration required. Feel free to join us for as much of the outing as you’d like!
