Celebrating ’Cane grads

This May, the University of Miami Alumni Association welcomes ’Cane graduates into a network of more than 190,000 alumni. Through these unprecedented times, there are various digital tools, resources, and methods to help you stay connected to the U, and fellow alumni, and friends.
