So put in for your time off, book the plane tickets, find a baby sitter...what ever it is you have to do to make sure you are there. It's a great opportunity to catch up with old friends, learn what is new at Memorial, create some new memories and be a student all over again...not sure about that last one!

Oh...one more thing! We can certainly use your help in spreading the word as we don't have contact information for everyone as people move, buy houses, change jobs, enter into relationships, change names, etc... We want the message to reach all our alumni and friends!

Cost:

Symposium - Free; Reunion Dinner and Mixer - $50 (plus cash bar) ; Biochemistry Open House with Lab Tours - Free
