All alumni are invited to return to campus for Tech Reunions, June 2–5, 2016. For the classes ending in 6 and 1, class activities range from dinners to Reunion Row teams; special events are also planned for the MIT10 recent graduates and the Cardinal and Gray Society.
The major reunion events are open to all: Tech Night at Pops, lab tours, department and living group receptions, faculty lectures at Technology Day, and the family-friendly Tech Challenge Games.
Toast to Tech, on Saturday night, will be the finale celebration of the 100th anniversary of MIT’s move from Boston to Cambridge. Held in Killian Court, Toast to Tech will feature fireworks on the Charles, an open bar, a live band, and dancing. There will also be a photo booth, so alumni will be able to capture images like the one below from Toast to Tech 2015.
Online registration runs from mid-March to mid-May. Learn more at alum.mit.edu/reunions and make your plans to enjoy a taste of MIT—without the problem sets.
