  • Will we be able to celebrate our reunion in person at a later date?

    Unfortunately, we are unable to commit to hosting, combining, or otherwise “making up” your reunion in person at a later time, due to resource, space, and timing constraints.

We hope you will join us in making it as successful as possible, as alumni from all over the globe will be able to participate in an array of timely and fun events.
