Thank you for a successful Reunion Weekend 2017!

Over 400 alumni and friends came back to Boston to celebrate their homecoming at several festive events throughout Reunion Weekend 2017. After exploring the BU Law complex—including incredible springtime views of the Charles River and Esplanade—during an open house on Friday, June 9, alumni celebrated with Dean O’Rourke and members of the law school faculty at the Faculty Welcome Reception and Champagne Toast. That evening, a special Golden Circle Dinner honored graduates of the Class of 1967, while members of classes ending in ’2 and ’7 reconnected during their respective milestone-reunion parties. On Saturday, alumni explored Boston on Duck Boats and a tour of the Museum of Fine Arts.

The weekend culminated with the annual Silver Shingle Awards Gala and “Sips & Sweets” After Party. All graduating years were invited to the State Room, overlooking the Boston skyline and harbor, to celebrate members of the BU Law community. This year’s Silver Shingle Awardees are:
