Reminder to UMPI Alums
Don’t forget to show your UMPI pride and celebrate your major accomplishments since graduation! Wear your snowy owl lapel pin you received when you graduated and answer the question, “Where have your wings taken you?” To answer that question, take a photo that shows you wearing the pin—either in your professional role or enjoying adventures all around the world—and then post the photo and your story to http://yourwings.umpi.edu. We hope to have everyone post a picture!
The third Wednesday of every month is “Wings Wednesday.” Upload a photo wearing your t-shirt on Wings Wednesday to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with #UMPIOwls for a chance to win a prize! The dates for the spring semester are February 24, March 16, and April 20.
