Tech Reunions 2018 drew graduates of all ages back to campus.

Aug 22, 2018

At this year’s Tech Reunions, MIT’s largest single gathering of alumni, MIT welcomed more than 3,500 alumni and guests to campus. Held June 7-10, the weekend included more than 150 events, including Tech Night at Pops and the late-night Pops Encore Party, Technology Day, and Toast to Tech. Saturday’s Technology Day program explored artificial intelligence and health, and the Technology Day Luncheon featured class-giving representatives who shared record-breaking numbers, totaling almost $160 million.
