Alumni Reunion 2018 — Reunion Details and Registration

March 8, 2018 


Dear Modern Languages and Study Abroad Alumni:

We hope you will be able to travel to Athens on Saturday, April 21 when our department will once again host a gala reunion.

Different than past reunions we have held, we hope to schedule a network , or meet and greet, with some of our current undergraduate and graduate students. This would be informal but give our students a chance to talk with you, our alumni, to find out what you are doing and discuss their goals. This event will begin at 11:00 am Saturday in Gordy Hall. Next on the agenda will be an open house set to begin about 3:00 pm. We will enjoy soft drinks, hors d’oeurves, and good conversations. At 6 p.m. dinner will be served in the Nelson Commons dining room. Following dinner, we will return to Gordy Hall so we can mingle in a less formal setting, listen to music from different cultures and dance. Other entertainment is still in the planning stages but we will keep you updated via the DML Reunion website.

Registration for the reunion is $30 per person which covers departmental events. Registration is only available online.

Deadline for registration is Friday, April 13, 2018.
