Social events 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 events

• Wine tasting or brewery tour

• Accepted and current student welcome receptions

• Young alumni welcome receptions (POP - Pub Outside of Penn)
