University of Michigan Alumni Association

Annual University of Michigan Student Send-off 

Each summer, alumni, students, families, friends and fans are invited to a festive send-off for our local new freshman and returning University of Michigan students. This is a great way to bridge summer into football season with our annual back to school salute. This is also the event when our annual club scholarship winners are recognized, and all students are celebrated with an relaxed outdoor family friendly reception. 

The past year's Student Send-off was held August 7, 2017.  At least 75 families, fans and friends enjoyed favorites tastes from TC and A2 with Moomers ice cream and Zingerman's brownies, along with the chance for students and families to meet each other, share some Go Blue camaraderie along with a rousing send off from the U of M Club of Grand Traverse.

The Student Send-Off & Summer Gathering is held in early August each year. Date will be posted by May for the 2018 gathering on this website and on the club's Facebook page. (Interested in joining the committee? Let us know at grandtraverse@umich.edu).
