Alumni Day 2016: January 23, 2016
THANKS to all for joining us for Alumni Day 2016! The snowy weather did not stop hundreds of alumni and their families from returning to campus to celebrate the day. A Photo Snapshot captures some of the moments from the day and and can be viewed HERE.
It's YOUR day! Alumni of all ages and their families are invited to return to campus for a full slate of activities. Highlights will include a winter carnival, featuring Barn Babies (the traveling baby animal petting zoo), a craft beer tasting and a chili cook-off contest, followed by the men’s and women’s basketball games. In the evening, former SURE Scholars will celebrate 20 Years of the Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience.
A NEW addition to this year's lineup of activities: Science Open Lab: Several Science Faculty members and current students will be on hand in laboratories to conduct Science experiments with children of alumni and talk about some of the current research they are working on. All are welcome!
