University of Michigan Alumni Association

About

Since 1990, the U of M Club of Greater Northville has been hosting alumni enrichment, social, athletic, career networking, and community service events and programs in communities throughout western Wayne and Oakland counties. Join us to connect with other local alumni and share your U of M pride!

Things we do include:

Connecting: Harnessing the power of the U-M community through alumni career and social networking  

  • Career networking and professional development workshops
  • Third Thursday networking happy hours and other celebratory events, including some specifically for younger alumni
  • An annual Freshman Sendoff event welcoming local incoming freshmen to the U of M community and featuring food, prizes and fun

Honoring: Keeping the U-M spirit alive by supporting Wolverine athletics 

  • Away football game viewing parties at the Northville Sports Den, where alums, family and friends can win door prizes and share Wolverine spirit. Viewing party proceeds provide financial support for the U-M Women’s Varsity Rowing team.

Giving: Helping others through community service and student scholarships  

  • Scholarships for incoming U-M freshman who reside within the club’s boundaries, with a portion of the money raised at an annual dinner featuring speakers such as Jack Harbaugh (2017), former U of M president Dr. Mary Sue Coleman (2015) and former U of M football coach Lloyd Carr (2014)
  • Community service projects with local non-profit groups, such as the Matthaei Botanical Gardens and the Livonia YMCA

Enriching: Accessing the best learning for life   

  • Tickets at discount prices to select U-M cultural events, including Department of Musical Theater productions
  • Tours and other opportunities to explore the history and culture of Southeast Michigan  

Membership

  • Our membership extends well beyond Northville to include alumni from Farmington, Livonia, Plymouth and many other communities throughout western Wayne and Oakland counties. All alums, family and friends are welcome at our events, regardless of where they live. 
  • Alumni who are paid members of the Alumni Association are automatically members of the U of M Club of Greater Northville with no additional dues to pay.
  • For almost all club activities, you do not need to be a current dues-paying member of the Alumni Association to participate. For many activities we offer discounted admission to Alumni Association members. Occassionally we offer special opportunities that are for members-only.     

Leadership

  • Our Board of Governors meets monthly, usually on the second Tuesday of the month at the Northville Sports Den.

If you would like to help organize an event for our club, attend a Board meeting, or just learn more about what we do, please email us at NorthvilleClub@umich.edu
