Young Alumni Club
The young alumni population is the largest segment of the alumni population, and the association recognizes the importance of engaging this demographic in meaningful ways. UNLV alumnus Jeff Panchavinin led an effort to build a program to engage UNLV’s young alumni aged 21 through 39.
The Young Alumni Club holds mixers once a semester. The most recent mixer was blended with a Runnin’ Rebels basketball viewing party at Born & Raised Las Vegas (BAR), where 100 young alumni and friends came together to cheer on the team and to network. Everyone in attendance helped turn BAR into a sea of red and, most importantly, thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
The young alumni group is now exploring other event opportunities outside of mixers to include career advice, graduate college assistance, and days of service to give back to the greater Las Vegas community.
