January is usually a quiet time for the alumni relations world…everyone is in a state of exhaustion from the holidays, so we commonly use this month to plan ahead for the rest of the year. That said, we do have a couple alumni events on the horizon – and want to make sure you’re aware!
- Pittsburgh Alumni: We’re hosting a pregame happy hour before the women’s hockey game in Pittsburgh (@ Robert Morris University) on Friday, January 21! We’re going to gather at Paradise Island Bowl for food and drink at 5 p.m., then head over to the rink to watch our nationally-ranked women’s hockey team square off against conference foe Robert Morris. The event is completely free – we’ll provide appetizers and your first drink at the reception, and we’ll even buy your game ticket as well!

- Erie Alumni: We’re inviting all Erie alumni to gather with Mercyhurst employees for a happy hour at U-Pick 6 located on upper Peach St on Feb. 3, 2011. We’ll be there from 5 – 7 p.m., and we’ll provide your first drink as well as a complimentary beer tasting! There will also be snacks, and a chance to win goodies like a Mercyhurst hoodie or Frozen Four hockey tickets! Simply visit our website – http://alumni.mercyhurst.edu/upick6 to register today!
