Thanksgiving with a Miner Family

UTEP Alumni have opened up their homes to UTEP students who are unable to go home for the holidays, or perhaps are new to the Thanksgiving custom.

The UTEP Student Alumni Association is sponsoring an “Adopt-A-Miner” program for students who aren’t able to go home for the holidays or perhaps are new to the Thanksgiving custom.  The UTEP Student Alumni Association, the UTEP Alumni Association, the UTEP El Paso Alumni Chapter and the UTEP Parents Association have teamed up to provide Miner’s with a home-cooked meal with UTEP families on Thanksgiving.

If you are interested in being adopted, adopting a student(s) or have questions please e-mail jreed2@utep.edu or call 915-747-5592.

The Student Alumni Association (SAA) promotes and nurtures UTEP Miner pride throughout the community, on campus and off.  We act as a continuous link between current UTEP students and alumni by upholding UTEP traditions and spirit.  By the time we graduate, we are the Miner Nation and we are ready for the world.
