Grand Reunion Weekend Spotlight: School Receptions and Department Open Houses
Friday, Jul. 29, 2011
One of the best things about Grand Reunion is the way in which it brings together many different parts of Santa Clara to show alumni exactly why they made the right decision in choosing to come here all those years ago. No longer centered around class parties on Saturday night, Grand Reunion is a weekend full of opportunities for Broncos to engage not only with classmates and fellow alumni, but also with the schools and departments that were such an instrumental part of their educational experience.
Since the Grand Reunion’s inception in 2009, the Saturday evening school receptions have emerged as some of the most enjoyed events of the weekend. These receptions serve not only as a great start to the evening for the reunion classes who will head off to their parties afterwards, but also as a wonderful celebration of the relationships forged between hardworking students and the faculty and staff who supported them in their scholastic endeavors. The College of Arts and Sciences, the Leavey School of Business, the School of Education and Counseling Psychology, and the School of Engineering will all welcome their former students for drinks and appetizers, whether they are celebrating a class reunion or not. So, don’t miss out! Make these receptions a destination during the reunion weekend and enjoy this opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow majors and graduates of your school.
Some departments have decided to take things a bit further and open their doors to former students at various times during the reunion weekend: Chemistry and Biochemistry, Political Science, Theatre and Dance, and Communication will host Open Houses, and more departments will be added to the list as Grand Reunion approaches. Take advantage of this chance to reconnect with these departments in a more intimate setting and stop by to say hi!
