Whether it had been five years or 50 since their last visit to the Quad, the level of excitement among the nearly 600 alumni and friends returning to campus for Reunion and Alumni Week in May was undeniable. More than 100 alumni volunteers, spanning six decades, put the special touch on this year’s programming and encouraged graduates from classes ending in “4” and “9” to come back. Amidst the hugs and laughter, attendees rediscovered the School during scientific symposia, tours, and other presentations. There was also ample opportunity to reconnect with classmates during an elegant gala at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston and more than 35 class activities over the weekend, ranging from museum tours to family picnics along the Charles River.
