UM Alumni Association Manistee

Welcome to the U of M Club of Manistee

On behalf of the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan, we’d like to invite you to join the U of M Club of Manistee, your connection back to all things Michigan!

The U of M Club of Manistee is part of a network of regional clubs within the U.S. that are affiliated with the Alumni Association. Alumni who are paid members of the Alumni Association are automatically a member of the U of M Club of Manistee, with no additional dues to pay.

The dues paid by Alumni Association members help provide the U of M Club of Manistee with the financial resources, communication tools and support that local club volunteer alumni need to host club events.

December 2, the Club again gave back by ringing the bell for the Salvation Army in both Ludington and Manistee.  It would be nice to get a group from Cadillac as well.


November 13, club memebersl served as ushers for the special youth concer of the Ann Arbor/U of M based Akropolis Quintet.



The 2017 Tailgate Extravaganza:
What you enjoyed...or what you missed

The 2017 Tailgate Extravaganza went off without a hitch. We had a good group of students from five counties along with many parents.  The silent auction went well. (The total has not been tallied yet, but it will definitely help with the scholarships for next year.) Manistee National did a great job with the food and accommodations. The weather was beautiful. Michigan is still the best public university in the country. What's not to like?

Below are a few pictures from the event.
