Alumni Weekend

Alumni Weekend 2022 has gone virtual!

Although we won't be on campus, our Alumni Weekend favorites - Last Lectures to Alumni, Alumni Association Awards Ceremony, Class Reunions - will definitely anchor our three-day event. Being virtual also gives us the opportunity to showcase more  - more alumni who can join us, more events, more surprises, and more fun!

We have new and exciting ways for you to connect with classmates and friends including a virtual Face Finder where you can post your selfie, classmate chat rooms, Hendrix Trivia, and more.

We hope you join us online April 1-3, 2022.
