It is so hard to believe we cannot reunite in Philadelphia for our reunion. In-person plans for this year’s Alumni Weekend may be postponed, but it is still a time to celebrate.
Reunion@Home is happening. We hope you will join us! Here is an update on Wharton events taking place Friday and Saturday. Our committee is also working on other programs/sessions as well as cohort gatherings that will take in the weeks to come.
Dean Geoff Garret & Professor Jeremy Siegel
Friday, May 15th 12 – 1:30 PM EDT

Again, while the event will be at your home, registration is required.
