In Summer 2011, the Boston University Alumni Association kicked off its brand-new learning program: Alumni College. From its roots as a vital component of Alumni Weekend, Alumni College emerged as a robust, stand-alone program designed to empower alumni through immersive educational experiences.

In 2011, alumni discussed how to preserve Boston’s working waterfront aboard a sunset cruise, enjoyed an urban ecology walk along the Charles River Esplanade, and examined methods to incorporate sustainability into business practices in classroom discussions.

“The Alumni College weekend was wonderful. Great classes, terrific field trips and a Boston Harbor Cruise, nice staff and participants. We were really catered to, with great meals, snacks, and mementos. Every need was anticipated and the weekend activities were very well organized.”
