Second Annual UNH Alumni Weekend in Miami

December 4-6, 2009


Enjoy a fun-filled weekend in Miami, including a behind-the-scenes tour of Land Shark Stadium followed by a UNH Alumni reception and tickets to the Miami Dolphins - New England Patriots game.

Kick off the weekend in Miami at the Alumni Welcome Reception at Shula's Hotel and Golf Club on Friday, December 4. Enjoy a complimentary assortment of puff pastry and chorizo tolosa, grilled chicken kebab, and pizzeta among other delicious foods. Beer, wine and soda also will be served.

On Saturday, December 5, take a behind-the-scenes tour of Land Shark Stadium led by Director of Stadium Operations and UNH alumnus Aaron Haviland '97 B.S. Following the tour, enjoy an alumni reception in the Sprint Fantasy Lounge with a delectable buffet and open bar.

Gear up for the excitement before the game on Sunday, December 6, at the private UNH Alumni pre-game tailgate beginning at 3:30 p.m. at Land Shark Stadium! Take a look at a sample menu for the pre-game tailgate. Show your UNH pride as you root on Miami Dolphins Head Coach and UNH alumnus Tony Sparano '84 B.S. and the Miami Dolphins as they take on their AFC East Divisional rivals, the New England Patriots. Last season, the Dolphins made the post season for the first time since 2001, led by first-year head coach Sparano, tying the New England Patriots in the AFC East with identical 11-5 records. Each alumnus is permitted to purchase a maximum of four packages.

Check out the photos from last year’s trip.
