Alumni Reunion Weekend is a great time to come back to the KU Medical Center and we hope many of you will be able to join us this year. For class years ending in 1 or 6, it is an especially great time to reconnect with your classmates as you celebrate milestones of 10, 15, or even 50 years as KUMC graduates.

Picture yourself walking the halls of the Murphy Building, finding your class photos on the walls, checking out the campus to see what's new or relaxing at the Bigger Jigger. I'm sure you have many memories to share with your classmates and guests who attend Alumni Reunion Weekend.

Don't forget to register online or mail in your registration form and reserve your spot today. Family members and guests are welcome to attend all activities with you.

We hope you make plans to join us October 7-8, 2011, and we look forward to having you back on campus!
