Social events, including happy hours, can be a good way for alumni to get to know one another in a relaxed setting. These events may be easier to plan and execute than other types of activities, and may appeal to young alumni or those new to a region. Ideas include:

• Cultural events

  • Guided museum tour
  • Theater tickets in conjunction with a talk by the producer, director, actors, etc.

• Sporting Events

  • Baseball games
  • Golf outing
  • Tailgates

• Family Events

  • Summer BBQ/picnics

• Annual holiday party

• Community service

• Wine tasting or brewery tour

• Prospective student, accepted/current student, and young alumni welcome receptions (POP- Pub outside of Penn)
