Register for Tech Reunions 2006 by May 19
Come back to MIT June 8–11 for favorite reunion activities like Tech Night at the Pops, the Reunion Row, and the Tech Challenge Games, open to all alumni. On Tech Day, June 10, learn how MIT Tackles Global Challenges. Undergraduate classes ending in six or one will also host events including a Red Sox game, a Chinatown banquet, and a scavenger hunt.
“Reunion years are a nice pause within our hectic lives for touching base with fondly remembered colleagues and appreciating our academic roots,” says Gerald M. Appelstein ‘80, class president.
Registration deadline: May 19. Register online at alum.mit.edu/reunions. Questions? Contact the reunions team at email@example.com or 617-253-8824.
Young Alumni Become MIT10
The MIT Alumni Association will now refer to those who have earned either undergraduate or graduate degrees within the past 10 years as MIT10, rather than Young Alumni. Why? “Young Alumni” may describe 22-year-old grads nicely, but older degree holders, especially those earning graduate degrees in their 30s or beyond, may find it, well, odd.
The new MIT10 designation, developed in consultation with current young alumni and students, also introduces a newly united suite of services, including reunion events and travel programs. The MIT10 logo was selected through a design competition open to students and local alumni. The winning logo, created by Roxanne Cartwright ‘02, incorporates the quintessential MIT image – the brass rat.
