A new club opened earlier this year for alumni in Salt Lake City and surrounding communities. Take advantage of the opportunity to stay connected with the U, meet fellow alums, network, volunteer, and expand our U community.
“Our club is looking to provide opportunities for Salt Lake-area alumni to connect with one another at networking events, a speaker series, and through community service projects,” says club co-VP Jon Bernal BS’01 MEd’14. “We especially want recent U graduates to get involved. This club isn’t just for those who graduated 10, 15, 25 years ago—this club is for everyone.”
Sixteen former Emeritus and Young Alumni board members were selected to serve on the SLC Club Board. Marsha Apgood MEd’84 and Daniel Young BA’06 JD’09 serve as co-presidents.
The club’s first event was the free game-watch party for the victorious Utah vs. BYU football game this past August. More than 1,000 U fans attended the family-friendly event featuring food trucks, prizes, giveaways, lawn games, music, and a visit from Swoop.
The club has many additional exciting events planned for alums living near the U. If you are a Salt Lake-area alum and are interested in joining the club or assisting with events, visit the Alumni Association’s website at alumni.utah.edu and search for “Salt Lake City” under “Alumni Clubs.” You can also stay up to date with club activities by joining the U’s Alumni-Salt Lake City Facebook group.
