Backpack to Briefcase Events
Do you want to learn from alumni who have "been there and done that" but don't have the time to commit to a one-on-one mentoring relationship? That's what is great about Backpack to Briefcase Events. They are condensed mentoring sessions. Meet with UAHuntsville alumni for one hour over lunch and ask them anything you'd like to learn about what life is like after the cap and gown, job hunting, career, and life after college. After past sessions, alumni and students alike have raved about the benefit of these meetings.
Each event will feature alumni from a different college. Students of any/all majors are welcome to attend any of the lunches. Free lunch or refreshments are provided. Space is limited. To sign up for this event, contact email@example.com" data-mce-href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com and specify which event you would like to attend.

Tell us why you love UAH!
This Valentines Day, we invite all Chargers on campus and around the world to celebrate the first Charger Love Day. Stop by our table on campus on February 14th or take to the web to show your Charger pride and tell us why you love UAH! Post on our facebook page, tweet #ChargerLove, or visit www.uah.edu/alumni.
Are you still sporting colors from a school other than UAH? It's time to trade in that shirt for some Charger Blue and White. Just bring your shirt to one of the T-shirt Trade-In tables, donate your t-shirt, and get a free UAH t-shirt in exchange. All t-shirts traded in will be donated to a local homeless shelter (so you're helping your community while supporting your alma mater). Charge On!!
