Social Activities

UMRA group at the State Capital

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. See the event listing (below) 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.

Below is a list of past events sponsored by Social Activities Committee.
