UTAA Annual General Meeting
Close to 900 guests attended the U of T Alumni Celebration on Saturday, May 31st, which took place as part of the university’s annual Spring Reunion.
The Celebration featured the UTAA’s Annual General Meeting followed by an insightful and entertaining on-stage conversation with TV personality and entrepreneur Robert Herjavec (BA 1984 New).
Robert was interviewed by business journalist Danielle Bochove (BA 1990 Trinity) and spoke candidly about his personal and business experiences as well as what he took away from his time at U of T.
The Celebration was followed by a BBQ on the Front Campus; both events were sponsored by the UTAA. View photos of these two events as well as the many other Spring Reunion events that took place over the weekend.
