It's a party any time UCM alumni get together!  The Alumni Foundation is here to help you create a MuleNation celebration around an athletic watch party, to social network in your area, develop professional relationships, or to just have some good ole' fashion "Burg" fun. Ready to get this party started? Email with Party in the Box in the subject line.


Host Responsibilities Before the Event

  • Visit with an Alumni Foundation staff member to determine if the UCM alumni population in your area will support a MuleNation event.

  • Mules and Jennies like to gather together.  Get your friends to bring their friends.

  • Secure a venue (public or private home) that provides a small gathering area and will allow you to reserve and decorate a few tables.  UCM Alumni owned businesses are a great place to start.

  • Share event details (date, time, and location) with your Alumni Foundation staff member.

  • If a watch party is planned, confirm that the venue can access the correct channel and is willing to do so.

Promotions and Reservations

  • Once the details are confirmed and submitted to your Alumni Foundation staff member, a promotions plan will be developed.  Multiple resources such as targeted emails, Instagram, and Facebook Events, and Facebook Groups will be considered.

  • The alumni office will host online registration for your event. A registrant list will be sent to the event host prior to the event.

  • If you choose to host a private event inviting only those fellow alumni you personally know, we ask for you to provide their names and updated contact information.

  • In a private home, the host would provide food and beverages.
