Over 1,700 alumni and guests, more than double the attendance of previous years, came back to BU for Reunion & Alumni Weekend October 24–26. For the first time, the event was held in the fall, rather than spring, and all alumni – not just members of reunion-year classes – were invited back.
The weekend featured career workshops, a 5K run/walk along the Charles, Alumni College classes, school and college open houses, a BU Beach bash, BU Oktoberfest, men’s and women’s hockey games, and special events for the classes of 1958, 1983, 1998, 2007, and 2008. On Saturday, alumni headed to a Boston elementary school
to perform community service.
An important initiative this year was the Leadership Summit, which brought together alumni committed to playing a role in Boston University’s future.
The summit also featured a luncheon recognizing the contributions of volunteer leaders and distinguished alumni across all Boston University schools, colleges, and programs.
