Fifteen years ago, alumni and friends celebrated the opening of the Robert D. Buchanan ’44 Alumni House. After years of planning and hard work by University of Maine alumni leaders, reunion classes and friends, the dream of having “A Place to Call Home” became a reality. With more than 13,000 alumni taking part, the campaign to construct Buchanan Alumni House was the largest in UMaine’s history. Built and maintained entirely through private monies, Buchanan Alumni House is home for more than 100,000 alumni and friends of the university. Since opening, the house has hosted 9,000 events, with over 275,000 attendees and countless numbers of visitors, including Dr. Buchanan this spring to celebrate his recent 95th birthday.
Please contact the University of Maine Foundation if you would like to discuss making a gift to benefit the University of Maine.
