Association Membership

When you walked across the stage and moved the tassel on your cap you not only signified your graduation from UMPI but also the beginning of your membership in the UMPI Alumni Association.


UMPI Alumni Association membership comes with benefits.  These benefits may change from time to time and will be updated accordingly.  Please note that using your benefits may require checking your information against our database to confirm your status so we recommend keeping your information updated with us.  Currently, some benefits may be claimed via the ‘honor system’ with select information being taken at the time of service for later verification.

10% Discount at the UMPI Campus Store

Located on the ground floor of the Campus Center, the Campus Store has been serving students, faculty, and staff for many years. The store hosts a variety of UMPI “North of Ordinary” clothing, Alumni Merchandise, office supplies, gifts, and other memorabilia.  Be sure to ask for your alumni discount at the register.

Free Gentile Hall memberships for all UMPI graduates

Caroline D. Gentile Hall, the newest building at the University of Maine at Presque Isle, officially opened to the public on January 21, 2006. Named in honor of the University’s longest serving faculty member, Gentile Hall features a large multipurpose court, fitness center, pool, elevated track, and climbing wall. The facility supports the University’s academic programs and student body, but also welcomes the community to use its resources.

The University offers free Gentile Hall memberships for all UMPI graduates (family members of graduates will still need to purchase memberships). To activate these alumni memberships, UMPI graduates should stop by Gentile Hall to complete the necessary registration forms.
