During the ongoing pandemic, it is often difficult to connect with people based on our background and interests. Alums in particular, often separated by many miles, have not been able to connect in person for university-related events in the past year. However, the College of Arts and Sciences is holding a virtual social on Wednesday, March 31 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Hosted by Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Robert Winn, this virtual social will welcome graduates from a variety of NMU departments. 

Alums from Art and Design; Biology; Chemistry; Communication and Media Studies; Earth, Environmental and Geographical Sciences; Economics; English; History; Mathematics and Computer Science; Languages, Literatures and International Studies; Music; Philosophy; Physics; Political Science; Psychology; Sociology and Anthropology and Theatre and Dance are all included.

Admission to the event is free of charge. Prospective attendees must register on the event website. After registering, attendees will receive a Zoom invitation in order to join.

“Dean Winn will share new initiatives and other updates from the College of Arts and Sciences,” according to the NMU event calendar. “Following the update, alumni are invited to turn their cameras and microphones on to ask questions and connect with fellow Wildcats.”
