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.
