Future Alumni Network (FAN)
Students Today – Alumni Tomorrow – Panthers Forever
Why join FAN?
FAN is a great way to make connections that will last a lifetime. Joining FAN allows you to create friendships and partnerships with students and alumni, while also getting you involved with campus pride and traditions. If you are a student looking to show off school spirit we are the student organization for you.
What FAN does
FAN is the gateway to showing your school pride with not only fellow students, but with alumni as well. We bridge the gap between alumni and students in order to create a sense of belonging amongst the two. Students, are not just Panthers while they are in classes, they are Panthers for life. Students and alumni are extremely similar in their goals and their love for their university so we want to make the connection and bring together the two groups in order to create a welcoming and growing campus and learning environment. FAN works with students and alumni to create events the promote Panther Pride and networking in the university. Connecting students and alumni, while also promoting school spirit is our goal. UWM is your home for life and we want students and alumni to feel involved.
