Social Programs

The Annual Valentine's Day Dinner & Dance invites you to celebrate the love of your life on the campus you love. The Young Alumni BBQ on Maryland Day is hosted at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center each spring. Keep an eye on your email for invitations to these events.

Young Alumni Career Workshop Series

Fill in the blanks between your college education and the real world with programming designed to teach and enhance life skills. Invitations to these types of programs are sent right to your email.

Alumni/Student Connection Programs

Volunteer your time to help current students start to navigate the working world. Learn about the services available to alumni or to help current students. Past student leaders can also volunteer to network with current student leaders at the O.N.E. UMD Student Leaders Conference and help students translate their leadership experiences on campus into a marketable professional skill set. Contact Kourtney Kleine Temple at ktemple@ur.umd.edu to learn more about the O.N.E. UMD program.

Service Programs
