Dear fellow alumni,
I am delighted to report on the great success of MIT Sloan Reunion 2006. More than 700 alumni and their guests returned to campus from 23 countries for four days this June, reconnecting with faculty and fellow graduates while making new connections throughout the MIT Sloan community. Over 140 alumni reunion class committee organizers and volunteer speakers helped drive over 47 compelling events (up from 17 last year), and were critical to making this Reunion such a well-attended success. Please join me in thanking them for their efforts.
Camaraderie, celebration, and pride in MIT Sloan permeated the Reunion events. This spirit was evident from the opening reception in the Tang Center to Sunday's family barbecue — where the smiles and laughter of the many alumni and their children energized everyone. This spirit was also evident during the Back to the Classroom sessions given by world-renowned faculty members and during the Dean's Luncheon, when John C Head III Dean Richard Schmalensee shared his State of the School address. And it was unmistakable at every class dinner on Saturday night.
The mission of MIT Sloan Alumni Relations is to connect alumni to the School and to each other, and to help alumni advance their careers. The success of MIT Sloan Reunion 2006, the number of alumni who returned, and the spirit they exhibited throughout the weekend are great steps along this path. We look forward to taking many more with all of you.
Your feedback on your Reunion is also very important to us, so please help continue to improve future Reunions by taking a moment to complete the Reunion evaluation form. Thank you in advance!
