Bee Happy Hour

Cheers to 11 years!

With the help of alumni from all over the country, Ambrosians from across the nation will gather together to toast their alma mater on Thursday, June 13 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Enjoy complimentary appetizers, cash bar, and a chance to win SAU door prizes at each of the locations below. This event is free and open to alumni, parents and friends of St. Ambrose!

If there isn't an event hosted near you, we still encourage you to celebrate St. Ambrose from wherever you are! Be sure to let us know where you're toasting from by using #BeeHappyHour in any photos you share on social media.

Last year's event was a huge success, bringing in 29 participating cities and close to 400 attendees. View photos from the 2018 event. If you're interested in hosting a Bee Happy Hour in the future, please contact Kelsey Pence for more details.
