December 3-5, 2010

Register Today!!!

Enjoy a fun-filled weekend in Miami, including a behind-the-scenes tour of Sun Life Stadium, followed by a private UNH Alumni reception and tickets to the Miami Dolphins - Cleveland Browns game.

Start your weekend at the Alumni Welcome Reception at Shula's Hotel and Golf Club on Friday, December 3. Enjoy an assortment of appetizers including grilled chicken kebab, crispy fried ravioli, BBQ pulled pork quesadilla, mushroom-bacon borchette and other delicious foods. Beer, wine and soda also will be served.

On Saturday, December 4, take a behind-the-scenes tour of Sun Life Stadium led by Senior Director of Facilities and UNH alumnus Aaron Haviland '97 B.S. Following the tour, enjoy a private alumni dinner reception in the Sprint Fantasy Lounge with a delectable buffet and open bar.

On Sunday, December 5, there's no need to worry about driving to the stadium and paying for parking! Enjoy round trip bus transportation from Shula's Hotel to the pre-game tailgate at Sun Life Stadium and back to Shula's Hotel after the game. Gear up for the excitement at the pre-game tailgate featuring a Bloody Mary station. Show your UNH pride as you root on Miami Dolphins Head Coach and UNH alumnus Tony Sparano '84 B.S. and the Dolphins as they take on the Cleveland Browns at 1 p.m.

The 2010 campaign is Sparano's third year as Dolphin's head coach. In 2008, his first with Miami, Sparano took over a 1-15 team from a year earlier and led them to a 11-5 record, the AFC East title and the team's first post season appearance since 2001. Last season, the Dolphins were in playoff contention until the very end of the season. Miami rebounded from an 0-3 start and won seven of their last 10 games to move into the playoff picture.

Each alumnus is permitted to purchase a maximum of two weekend packages.
