I set up the Morris's Michigan Patent Students (MMPS) group a long time ago.  It is for my former students.  These days both "Michigan" and "patent" are often honored in the breach.  The group gets about 10 messages a year, but/and is a good way for you to find each other without involving Google or  Facebook.  Email me,, if you think you are entitled to join.
