The coronavirus pandemic has put a temporary halt on our local and regional events, but that doesn't mean we can't socialize from our homes. Join your classmates for a virtual reunion during a happy hour or take a class, participate in a panel discussion, and more—all hosted by our alumni community. Check back often as new events are scheduled.
Do you have an idea for a session? Contact Director of Alumni Relations Jason Bershatsky for more information.
