Area Alumni Events
The Association hosts area alumni events in different regions of the state including the Midlands, the Lowcountry, the Upstate, the Strand, the Central Savannah River Area, and Darlington County. Outside of South Carolina, events are hosted in Charlotte and in Atlanta.
Meetings and other social gatherings are held in these areas so that we may bring FMU to the doorsteps of alumni residing there.
Suggestions for Area Events
Events are planned as either social, educational, cultural, or recreational. The Association takes advantage of local resources (parks, museum exhibits, theater productions, community events). Types of Events include:
* Receptions with FMU faculty, staff, current students
* Happy hour gathering at a local restaurant
* Cookout or wine & cheese party at the home of an alumnus
* Brunches or lunches at local restaurants
* Networking receptions
* Tailgate parties at FMU sporting events
