2021 Alumni Weekend: June 4-5

Reminisce and celebrate!

Alumni Weekend 2021 goes virtual! We remain committed to providing the opportunity for classes to gather in person as it becomes safe and will stay in touch with class leaders regarding those plans later in the year. In the meantime, we hope that you will join us for many exciting events as part of Alumni Weekend, June 4-5, 2021! Reconnect with longtime friends, former faculty members, and take time to recognize the impact your time at Hopkins had on your life.

Faculty Hour
Drop in and visit virtually with some of your favorite faculty members from the past and present. Faculty members will have virtual rooms that you can drop in, then easily visit someone else! Faculty member participants include: John Anderson, Dana Blanchard, Jim Bucar, Erika Chapin, Brad Czepiel, Rocco DeMaio, Dan Drummond, Bill Ewen, Susan Elconin Feinberg, Clay Hall, David Harpin, Lan Lin, Errol Saunders, Peter Ziou and more!

Class Gatherings (for classes ending in 1s and 6s)
Reunion class committees will host virtual gatherings for each class. Grab a beverage and snack and catch up with classmates you may not have seen in years. A perk to the virtual format- easier participation from those who live far away and haven't travelled back for an in person reunion!
