U-M Seattle

Virtual Networking Event for May

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, all of our usual in-person events have been canceled for the foreseeable future. But our first virtual Happy Hour was such a success that we decided to schedule another one! Unfortunately attendees will have to supply their own drinks and appetizers for this event. But we trust it will still be fun to congregate virtually and connect with other U-M alums in the area. This is definitely something different! But if you’re game, then sign up today and join us for our second virtual networking event for U-M alums in the greater Seattle area!

How to Support U-M Seattle Club Partner Bars

During this unprecedented time, the combination of businesses being required to temporarily shut down and people staying home has caused many small local businesses to suffer. While most of us are feeling some strain right now, whether it be financial or otherwise, local communities and customers are essential to supporting small businesses like your favorite U-M Seattle Club Partner Bars: Buckley’s, JJ Mahoney’s, and Old Stove Brewing.
