What we're about

This is a group for Naropa alumni, faculty, staff, and current students (future alumni)!

Our Meetups are for alumni only, with the exception of the 2nd Meetup of the quarter, which is open to the entire Naropa and greater Naropa communities (faculty, staff, current students, and folks who just jive with the Naropa-vibe).

You can find our group on facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/630720890408677/

We host monthly happy hour Meetups designed to (re)connect us with each other. Let's know each other, help each other, do some professional networking, and continue to grow and give back in unique and creative ways.

We meet the last Wednesday of every month from 5:30-7:30pm at different Boulder-area locations, and follow a quarterly format as follows:

January, April, July, October: Round table Discussion (i.e., politics, society, mindfulness, sustainability, ethical citizenship, diversity, current events, Naropa news, community involvement)

5:30-6:15 Meet and greet.

6:15-6:55 Discussion topic is introduced and we discuss. Share ideas and collectively imagine.

February, May, August, November: Exploring Right Livelihood- Catching Up Alumni Presentation

(current naropa students, faculty, staff and anyone interested are invited)

5:30-6:15 Meet and greet.

6:15-6:55 Presentation by a Naropa community member on what awesome project they're pursuing, a business they've started, a unique career path they've chosen, how they made something seemingly boring/normative-sounding into something unique and interesting, or another creative topic. We're all up to cool things, so let's share and collaborate! Presentation followed by Q&A.

March, June, September, December: Naropa Alumni Give Back- Community Art and Creative Civic Engagement

5:30-6:15 Meet and greet.

6:15-6:55 Discussion, brainstorming and/or work on a creative project to better our broader community (i.e., collaborations with local non profits, musician symposiums, supporting special events, discussion and strategic brainstorming on how to help Naropa University and current Naropa students beyond just giving money).

Please contact Cristina if you'd like to present at our 2nd Month Meetup or if you'd like some support in starting a Naropa alumni group in your neck of the woods!
