Make Your Voice Part of the Alumni Center Experience

Imagine a place dedicated to immersing you in the sacred experiences that bring Wolverines together; somewhere you can feel the spirit and hear the sounds of true Michigan pride. The newly renovated Alumni Center will be that place when it reopens in early 2021. It will be a home for the Leaders and Best that keeps this pride alive for current and future alumni. 

We want every guest that comes through our doors to have that experience, so we designed a space that brings this feeling to life right before your eyes. This is your chance to be a part of it. 

We are looking for alumni to submit videos of themselves singing the chorus of “The Victors.” Your recording will be combined with videos from your fellow alumni to create one chorus of Wolverines that welcomes visitors to the Alumni Center. This video will be featured in the Immersion Room off the lobby.

How to submit a video

We’ve made it easy. All you need to do is click on the button below and follow the simple instructions to record. Don’t worry if you don’t get it right on the first take, the system will let you re-record as many times as you’d like. The video at the top of this page is a great example of what we’re looking for — sing along with it if you’d like! It can help you stay on key and at the correct tempo.

    • Hail! to the victors valiant
    • Hail! to the conqu’ring heroes
