Homecoming will continue to be marketed in email communications throughout the summer. Beginning with the August Alumni Insider, PAE will begin to include registration calls to action in email communications to all alumni.

Social Media

Social media posts from the @arizonaalumni and @supportuaz channels will begin this summer with full social marketing efforts kicking up in August to coincide with the start of the fall semester. A social media toolkit will be provided for featuring a timeline, sample posts as well as access to photos, videos and graphics.

Direct Mail

A reunion save-the-date along with an official invite to all 50th reunion members along with Silver and Sage Society members. 

 

Annual Giving

Reunion members will be asked to donate in support of their class gift.   

Colleges and Partners

There will be opportunities to advertise events on the central Homecoming page as well as participate in the Wildcat for Life Tailgate by hosting tents and performing on the main stage.
