Returning to campus wasn’t an option because of covid-19, so Tech Reunions went virtual this year. More than 4,800 alumni and friends gathered online May 29–31 to celebrate class milestones, explore alumni achievements and faculty research, compete in a trivia face-off, and more. The annual Tech Day symposium featured a conversation about MIT’s pandemic response, led by Alumni Association president R. Erich Caulfield, SM ’01, PhD ’06, with MIT president L. Rafael Reif and other Institute leaders—and a closing event marked the 120th anniversary of the Association of MIT Alumnae (AMITA).
