Affinity Reunions

Date: Varies November 5-8, 2015

Affinity reunions are gatherings of University of Miami Alumni based on involvement in or allegiance to a particular group, experience, or common connection (i.e. United Black Students, Greek Organizations, The Band of the Hour, The Miami Hurricane, etc.)

Alumni Weekend and Homecoming only happens once a year, make your affinity reunion a part of the action. It is a great way to remain connected to your fellow ’Canes, and there's no time like the present to reach out to members, recreate YOUR traditions, and celebrate the common bond that unites each University of Miami Graduate. Gather your members and make this your annual tradition.

Plans are well underway for what promises to be an outstanding Alumni Weekend and Homecoming hosted by the University of Miami Alumni Association. With your support, together we will make it the best ever!

Alumni Weekend and Homecoming is not complete without Affinity group events that alumni look forward to.

For inclusion in Alumni Weekend and Homecoming 2015 marketing materials please complete the online Affinity group submission form by July 24, 2015.

Details are currently being confirmed, check back often as additional updates and information become available.
