Outstanding Spirit Group of 2017!
The Alumni Association awarded our group the Outstanding Spirit Group Award for 2017. The award is presented to one spirit group each year for engaging alumni in their community through a diverse calendar of events across a wide range of interests and life stages. Thank you to everyone who has participated in our events.
About Our Group
Our club serves members of the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan in the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina. The Piedmont Triad includes Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point. Our events are open to all former students, alumni, and Michigan fans in the area.
We are a resource for former students, prospective students, and fans of the University of Michigan in the Triad. We provide opportunities for social events, networking, community service, student recruiting, and support for students from the local area.
In addition to watch parties on football Saturdays, we get together for social events like our euchre tournament in the winter and with other Big Ten alumni groups in the Triad. In the spring, we participate in the AAUM Community Service Days with an emphasis on organizations in which our members are involved. We have events throughout the year and, like all Michigan alumni groups, we are the most active in the fall. If you are in the Triad on a football Saturday, join us to watch the game!
We need you! Are you new to the Triad? Looking for a volunteer opportunity? This is a great time for you to get involved with our club. Some of our long-term volunteers are stepping back from leadership positions and we need people to fill those roles. Many of the Michigan fans who attended our 2022 and 2o23 watch parties have moved to the Triad in recent years. If you’re new to the area, our club is a great way to meet and connect with others in the U-M community here in the Triad.
If you would consider a leadership role, please contact us. If you prefer a role behind the scenes in community service, communications, or social media, we want to hear your ideas. This is your chance to have an impact on the direction of our club for the future and meet some great people along the way.
