Reunions & Celebrations
First Annual “M” Club Open House
The “M” Club would like to thank everyone who attending the first annual “M” Club Open House event on January 26, 2013. Attended by approximately 150 “M” Men & Women, families, and guests, the Open House was a smash success that featured tours of TCF Bank Stadium, access to the T. Denny Sanford Athletics Hall of Fame, complimentary snacks and beverages, and access to Men’s & Women’s Gymnastics and Wrestling. It was a wonderful opportunity to come together and reminisce on the past and celebrate the future of Gopher Athletics. We look forward to providing this event again next January and are exploring the possibilities of a biannual Open House. Stay tuned!
