Alumni Weekend going fully virtual for 2021
Alumni association honors 50-year anniversaries of Classes of 1970 and 1971
Miamians will once again come together to celebrate Alumni Weekend in a virtual environment on June 11-12
In the spirit of public interest and with safeguarding the health of the Miami family in mind, the Miami University Alumni Association made the early decision that Alumni Weekend 2021 will be a fully virtual event.
“By making the decision now, we can work with reunion committees and groups to make Alumni Weekend an uplifting, engaging and uniquely Miami experience for everyone,” said Kim Tavares MBA ’12, executive director of the alumni association. “We are excited to connect with Miamians across the country in fun and interactive ways as we bring the spirit of Love and Honor to them wherever they may be.”
More than 1,000 Miamians interacted with Alumni Weekend in 2020, including 12,600 total online views. The event featured a toasted roll tutorial, virtual yoga, Alumni College webinars and more.
Planning is ongoing to honor the 50th anniversaries of both the Classes of 1970 and 1971 with exclusive programming and activities during Alumni Weekend 2021.
“One of the highlights of each Alumni Weekend is recognizing the golden anniversary of our 50-year class,” Tavares said. “We are looking forward to celebrating this wonderful milestone with both the Class of 1970 and the Class of 1971 in a special way.”
While Alumni Weekend will be virtual only, future alumni events will be decided on an individual basis. Campus health updates are available on the university’s Healthy Together web page.
