where ever you go
The University of Michigan spirit is alive and well here in Australia and New Zealand!!!
We believe in building a positive base of - and for - Alumni in ALL corners of ANZ. Our purpose is simple: bring together UM alumni, fans, and friends and keep the Maize-and-Blue-spirit strong through annual Alumni events, local and regional club gatherings, Alumni spotlights, and regular newsletters.
We also want to be the point of contact for those simply looking to talk to a fellow Alumni, or the point of call for those seeking networking and IMPACT opportunities. Let the spirit thrive in ANZ, and let's continue to build positive change in our club and in our local and national communities.
SHow us your spirit!
Have you wondered how many Michigan alums live in this glorious corner of the globe? Don't you wish you could spot them while traveling?
We certainly do!
Send us photos of you, your friends, your families, even your pets wearing Michigan gear! We want to see you in your maize-and-blue best, no matter where you are. Just attach them to an email and send to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll highlight the photos in an upcoming newsletter and on our website!
