About Us

Merage School Dinners with Anteaters is a spinoff of the UCI Alumni Association’s Dinners with Anteaters formerly called Dinners for 12 Anteaters. It is a dinner program that brings students, alumni and leaders throughout Orange County and Los Angeles together for an evening of food, fun and mentorship. These dinners are organized by the Advancement Office and is hosted at the Merage School. Over dinner, hosts and students engage in casual and friendly conversation about their UCI/Merage School experiences, personal journeys, career goals and more. Since this spinoff event began in 2016, the event brought over 30+ Merage School alumni and 200+ students together to share stories and give advice over a nice warm meal – resulting in a fulfilling and uplifting evening.

For this quarter, we are going VIRTUAL! To bring the Merage School community together, we are partnering with the Dean’s Leadership Circle, Merage Student Association and Merage Undergraduate Student Association.

Don’t miss this chance to personally connect with alumni and hear firsthand about their career and life journeys. Register now!
