You may have already heard of Old Stove Brewing. After all, the place is the anchor tenant in the new MarketFront extension to the Pike Place Market, it’s been named the 2018 Best Brewery Taproom in Seattle, and it’s already been featured on the cover of Seattle Met magazine.
The Alumni Association of the University of Michigan (AAUM) has recently updated its website to significantly expand its content for alumni. Here’s my best effort to explain what’s going on.
First off, this will probably work best if you open the alumni.umich.edu site in a separate browser window, so you can follow along as I offer my explanation of what’s new.
Did you know that U-M alumni now have access to Google Apps after they graduate?
See this IT Services page for info:
In order to access these benefits, you will need a U-M uniqname, so if you don’t yet have one, visit this page to request one:
Did you know that you can add our Club Events Calendar to your own personal calendar, so that you’ll always have all of our event details close at hand? Just head on over to our Calendar page, then click on the little orange “iCal” button at the bottom. You should then be prompted to add our calendar to yours. Note that this address has recently changed, so if you did this before, you should probably delete your existing U-M Seattle calendar and then go through the steps described above to re-add it.
For all of our Eastside alumni, please note that Pam Stoeffler has found a great new game watch location for us!
J J Mahoney’s Irish Pub
8932 161st Ave NE
Redmond, WA 98052
The new venue is family-friendly, has free parking and will be opening early and serving breakfast for the 9 AM games. They have BTN and U-M alums will be able to hear the audio for our games.
Do know your U-M Login ID? If you don’t already have one, we recommend you get it now, so that you’ll have it available next time you want to register for an event, or access a protected Alumni Association resource.
The Alumni Association now has a new Ticket Exchange Community that all U-M alums can use to either buy or sell tickets from other alumni.
Feel free to use this new tool if you’re planning a trip to a U-M game, or have tickets you don’t plan to use.
Now you have a new way to support your local alumni club – and it won’t cost you a dime! Just sign up for Amazon Smile, and select the University of Michigan Club of Seattle as the organization you’re supporting. Form then on, every time you purchase something at smile.amazon.com, you’ll pay the same low price you would have otherwise, but a portion of your payment will go to our club! What could be easier! And the additional revenue will contribute to fulfilling our club’s mission.
Be sure and watch this video of Wolverines around the world singing “The Victors.” The Seattle Club shows up about halfway through!
