We here at MAPH would like to thank all of the alums who came out (despite the cold) and made the MAPH Alum Happy Hour a very successful and enjoyable event! Old friends met and discussed over tasty finger foods (the fried mushrooms really were incredible) and frothy pints (you didn’t even have to dig through a bucket of ice for it–although there will always be that prized moment of finding the last “good” beer, even if you develop frostbite in the process…).
We hope you all had fun and we look forward to seeing you at future events. Keep your eyes open for an announcement when we all thaw out this spring.
Send us a post and tell us your tales of rekindled friendships and rehashed philosophical debates. Any pictures? Send those too!
Perhaps it’s been awhile since you’ve talked to your fellow MAPHers (or maybe it was just this morning); in either case we are launching the official afterMAPH blog– a place where you can reunite, share ideas, read about things going on in Chicago, Hyde Park, and the lives of your fellow alums. We are doing this in attempt to sustain the MAPH community, encourage conversations and networking, and to keep you updated on the great things MAPH alums are doing these days. We welcome your contributions, comments, and ideas to the blog and are hoping to create a space that is useful and perhaps even entertaining to you.
This blog aims to include job announcements, Alumni Events, MAPH Alum news, and some MAPH/University/Chicago news of interest. Please read, enjoy, send your submissions, and perhaps even pretend like you are back in MAPH office in Classics, drinking mediocre coffee, and chit chatting with your fellow MAPHers about your thesis and the next social hour. For info on how to submit, check out the “Contribute” page.
Welcome and enjoy!
