Hockey Ticket Giveaway!

‘Tis the season of giving, so today I have a fun giveaway for you.

I’m giving away 10 pairs of tickets for a UVM hockey game. T-E-N pairs!


Enter the raffle here to win tickets for you and a friend to join me for a UVM Hockey game against Northeastern on Saturday, January 7th.

We’ll meet at Alumni House for a pregame reception (read: happy hour of sort) before the game. There will be snacks and drinks.

Don’t forget to enter the raffle here.

I’ll announce the winner next week.

Good luck!

Happy Hour at Alumni House

We’re throwing a Happy Hour at the newly completed UVM Alumni House. Come have a drink (on us, of course) and be one of the first alums to see the historic house.

Alumni House Happy Hour
September 29
Time: 5:30 – 7:30PM
Location: UVM Alumni House, 61 Summit Street, Burlington, VT
The fun part: Your first two drinks are on us!


Not familiar with Alumni House? It’s your new home on campus. Check out this video – where Ryan gives a tour of the house, MTV Cribs style.

If MTV Cribs isn’t ringing a bell, let us remind you. It was that show where celebrities toured you around their homes and explained the contents of their fridges, showed you weirdly shaped pools, and talked about their tacky furniture (see this beautiful summary from Buzzfeed).


Register here and we hope to see you on September 29.

Whoops. Introduction to the Class of 2016, Part 2

Hi Class of 2016!

So…you are all receiving emails from us at the UVM Foundation and Alumni Association with links to original, fun and informative blog content every week right?

Dwight Meme

We JUST realized that only half of your class has been receiving emails about our posts each week. Don’t ask why — it’s really dumb, so let’s never speak of it again.

To make up for our mistake, here are some important links to everything you have missed so far.

We know this isn’t the best introduction, but we hope you will find this blog useful and will return when you actually receive our weekly emails.
