Young Alumni events create an opportunity for School of Dentistry alumni, ages forty two years and younger, to interact with colleagues and friends of a similar age group. The Alumni Association plans to host multiple Young Alumni events in unique venues within Alabama. In the spring of 2013, the Alumni Association hosted its first Young Alumni event at Mix Cafe in Birmingham, AL. The second Young Alumni event was at the new Regions Field in Birmingham, AL. Attendees enjoyed baseball and dinner with the dean, Dr. Michael Reddy, and Executive Director of Development, Mr. Scott Huffman. Young Alumni events will serve as a base to keep recent graduates connected to their alma mater.
