Six Special Ways to Celebrate U of T Alumni Reunion, May 25 to 29, 2022
Want to explore new ideas, catch up with friends from your U of T days, and create new experiences back where it all began? Look no further than Alumni Reunion. From online and in-person meetups and fascinating lectures to food and family fun, the events that make Reunion so popular are back.
Taking place every spring, Reunion is the University of Toronto’s premier alumni gathering—and biggest of the year—bringing thousands of alumni back to our three campuses and convening our extended global community of grads through virtual program offerings.
This year marks Alumni Relations’ first large-scale foray into delivering a hybrid Reunion experience. “We’re pleased to extend the reach of Alumni Reunion,” says Barbara Dick, Assistant Vice-President, Alumni Relations. “In-person events will be complemented by an array of online events, making the Reunion experience available to all alumni, wherever they’re located. We are delighted by the enthusiastic response from our alumni community.”
Register now and choose from 75+ online and in-person offerings. Here’s a taste of some fun and informative activities happening at this year’s Alumni Reunion:
