It is a weekend full of activities including class dinners, Management Conference, the annual Alumni Celebration, campus tours, and more.

Does my Reunion gift really make a difference?

A

Yes! Our Reunion Class Gift supports the school's top priorities and helps close the gap between tuition and the total cost of educating a student. Every dollar makes a difference for current students. Furthermore, as alumni, our collective support helps Chicago Booth retain the best faculty, attract the brightest students, and expand its global impact.
