The UNM Alumni Association and UNM Young Alumni Chapter are inviting soon-to-be Fall Class of 2016 graduates to celebrate their accomplishments and induction into the UNM alumni family at the New Graduate Reception from 5:30 to 7 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 15 at Hodgin Hall Alumni Center.

UNM graduates automatically become UNM Alumni Association members when they graduate. There are no annual dues or fees associated with the membership. The New Graduate Reception is the first of many benefits and events for new UNM alumni.

Graduates are encouraged to bring friends, fellow Lobos and soon to be alums for wine and beer, appetizers, and music. Door prizes include a drawing for a UNM Diploma Frame for a 2016 grad. Wine and beer will be served only to those 21 and older.

For more information and to RSVP, visit the Alumni website or call 505-272-5808.
