Sponsored by the UWO Alumni Association and University Books & More, the Almost Alumni Lunch introduces the University’s newest graduates to the Alumni Relations Office and the benefits and services for which they are eligible, including a free email account, job search tools and discounts at the bookstore as well as other campus and area venues.
“Attending the Almost Alumni Lunch is a great way to kick off your transition from a UW Oshkosh student to a UW Oshkosh graduate,” said UWO Alumni Director Christine Gantner. “We want our newest alumni to be aware of what is available to them and provide meaningful opportunities to help them stay connected to their alma mater.”
Gantner said she is especially excited to share information about some new benefits that alumni can take advantage of, including auto and home insurance offerings through Liberty Mutual and an Alumni Preferred Partners benefit program.
In addition, the Alumni Association recently announced a partnership with the UW Credit Union to offer alumni credit cards showcasing iconic campus imagery.
The celebration lunch takes place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Pollock, located across the street from Albee Hall. Students can stop by and enjoy a quick sandwich and dessert. They are invited to register to win alumni gear or a diploma frame from University Books & More.
Those who preregister by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org will receive a free gift when they arrive. Or, students can just drop by on the day of the event as their schedules allow.
