Social Activities

UMRA State Capitol vist 2018:  Everyone seemed to really enjoy both the tour and the chance to chat/get to know each other.

The UMRA Social Activities Committee​'s major function is to identify activities and opportunities for ​members to gather together and socialize. ​We have participat​ed in events offered by other ​University organization​s such as the Campus Club and the Alumni Association and we have scheduled events that we think might be of interest to our members. ​Most months we have an organized social activity.


Since its formation, the Committee has planned numerous events which have been well attended by UMRA members.  ​Some have pictures attached.  ​Planning is underway for events for the remainder of the calendar year.  See the Social Events listing (upper right) for previous activities. If you have ideas for future events, or would like to join our committee, please contact us.  The planning committee meetings quarterly unless something special comes up.
