JANE with the Seattle Symphony

Join your fellow Wolverines to immerse yourself in the world of pioneering primatologist Jane Goodall with the stunning National Geographic documentary, JANE. Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of Goodall, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. The film is set against a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass.

Hurry and get your ticket (which includes a pre-signed copy of the book!) before you’re left waving through a window!

Admitted Students Reception

We are hosting our annual pizza party for Puget Sound area high school seniors (and their parents) who have been admitted to the University of Michigan. We need alumni, especially recent grads, and any parents of current students, to attend, as we try to make our best case for the U-M! Share your most memorable U-M experiences and help answer students’ questions. We need your help as we try to convert these admitted students into enrolled students.

The Nutcracker at Pacific Northwest Ballet

Turns out we have a couple of U-M alums on the Board for the Pacific Northwest Ballet, and they’ve invited us to put together a group outing to The Nutcracker, including a special backstage tour!

We’ve scheduled this for a Saturday matinée in the middle of December in hopes that this will maximize accessibility for those who live on the Eastside, and for those who may want to bring children to the performance.
