’Canes Communities

Welcome to the Neighborhood

With summer coming to a close, here at the University of Miami, we welcome students back to campus. ’Canes Communities nationwide will celebrate this time of year together on Thursday, September 13th with a signature event to welcome alumni to their new city. Welcome to the Neighborhood is a great opportunity for ’Canes everywhere to learn about their local UM network, make connections, reminisce, plan future events, sign up for ’Cane Biz discounts, and more. This year, more than 20 cities around the country will participate including Chicago which will feature Miami Business School Dean John A. Quelch. Find a venue near you and register today!
