Alumni: Participate » Alumni Weekend

Mark your calendar for Alumni Weekend 2015, May 15-17!

This is the reunion year for classes ending in “5” and “0”.

Join a Reunion Committee

Reunions are significant anniversary celebrations for our alumni and an important focus for our Alumni Relations efforts. As a Reunion Class Committee Member, you are the most effective ambassador and advocate and play an essential role in fostering the relationship between the School and fellow alumni. Whether it is your 5th or your 50th, your help behind the scenes is what makes your class reunion a memorable and meaningful event!

As a Committee Member, we hope you will help us accomplish three important goals:

  • Improve communications by talking to your classmates about the School and upcoming reunion activities as well as provide us with feedback about what we can do for you;
  • Increase attendance at Alumni Weekend by attending and encouraging your classmates to attend Penn Dental Medicine festivities;
  • Increase alumni support by making a gift to the Penn Dental Medicine Annual Fund and encourage your classmates to do the same.
