Thousands of alums returned to campus in October for Alumni Weekend, to lunch with old friends, tour the changing campus, sit in on classes led by star faculty members, and watch the Terrier icemen topple Michigan, 3-2.

This year marked the first time that all seventeen schools and colleges hosted alumni at the same time, and more than 100 events were offered, among them: the Distinguished Alumni Awards cere­mony, the Inaugural Presi­dent’s Panel on Energy, the Howard Zinn Lecture Series, a conversation with Bill O’Reilly (COM’75), host of Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor, Alumni College classes, a career-management program, and the presentation of alumni awards by individual schools and colleges, including a College of Communica­tion Distinguished Alumni Award to tennis writer Bud Collins (COM’09). Collins, who finished his classes, but not his thesis, in 1955, officially collected his master’s degree in May 2009.

Karol Rodriguez (COM’99), a lawyer from Puerto Rico, came back to BU to catch up with friends she hadn’t seen in a while. “Plus,” she said, “it’s a place that I hold dear, and it brings back memories.”
