The key to a successful alumni organization is strong, creative programming which appeals to alumni of all ages and interests. This could include events of all types from a happy hour gathering, a send-off picnic to a formal annual dinner.  Whatever the size or complexity, the key to a successful event is detailed planning. As the old adage states "the devil is in the details."

Alumni Relations has created a series of documents to assist you in the planning of your event. Not everything in these guides will apply to your specific event. The information sheets should be used as a tool and you can use or disregard whatever is appropriate. We're always open to new ideas and techniques so if you discover we've overlooked something important or a better suggestion, please don't hesitate to contact us.
