Chapter gatherings, golf outings, ski dates, lobster bakes – whatever the occasion, stay in touch by attending Alumni events. For all of our planned events, check out the Upcoming Event Calendar.

Interested in planning an event? These are some of the events we run on a regular basis or can help you to plan, should you be interested. Call the Alumni Affairs Office for help with events information or event planning.

  • Summer Reunions – Summer Reunions are a time to return, reflect, reminisce and revel with classmates and fellow alumni and learn what’s new and happening on campus. Reunion volunteers create class-specific outreach and program plans in addition to the traditional activities planned by the Office of Alumni Relations, such as presentations, a barbeque, boat and facilities tours, and a lobster feed. Join us to create a memorable reunion that will strengthen ties to your classmates, other alumni, and Maine Maritime Academy.
  • Mini Musters or Gatherings – Connect with other alumni through mini musters, or gatherings, by class, major, athletic team, club organization, or other affiliation. These can take many forms: a gathering at a restaurant, a day at one’s home or camp, or a weekend event. Identify a volunteer or two from the group and contact the Office of Alumni Relations. We will publish a Save the Date announcement, assist in mailings for your event, and post notices on Upcoming Events, Facebook and in the bi-monthly e-newsletter. Click here for Event Planning Tips.
