Located at the EMU Amphitheater, graduating students are all welcomed with a festive afternoon of socializing with fellow graduates, delicious root beer floats, and numerous giveaways on behalf of SAA, the UO Alumni Association (UOAA), and many local sponsors. Seniors have the opportunity to hear from former alumni about what life after college holds and connect with UOAA partners. Graduates will also be able to learn about the benefits of becoming a UOAA member. Come and celebrate before embarking on your journy as alumni.
