Cheers, Ford School alumni and friends!

You are invited to attend the inaugural Worldwide Ford School Spirit Day on July 14 at a festive establishment in a city near you.

Just what is Worldwide Ford School Spirit Day?
  • An alumni-led opportunity for you to catch up with Ford School friends, including alums, current students, incoming students, and other community members - all are welcome!
  • A chance to find out what is happening at the Ford School
  • An excuse to share your Ford School spirit by toasting President Ford on what would have been his 98th birthday!

Come prepared to test your mettle with President Ford trivia for the chance to take home Ford School swag.
