Before our Gryphons took on McMaster in this year’s highly-anticipated homecoming game, the University of Guelph Alumni Association (or the UGAA as we are known) welcomed alumni back to campus for our annual homecoming pre-game party. More than 250 alumni, family and friends joined us at the Brass Taps. The sold-out event included brunch, an alumni t-shirt, game ticket and a chance to mingle with old friends and make new ones. Gryphon spirit was in full effect as alumni joined students to cheer on our football team in an epic faceoff. Better luck next year boys!
Missed your chance to get a ticket? Be sure to watch the alumni e-newsletter for all the dates and details for upcoming alumni events! The next UGAA event will be Frosty Mug in January,. Be sure to buy your ticket early as it’s sure to sell out!
