May 2013

May 2013

The month of May is often seen as a transition between spring and summer as the days get longer and warmer.  May is also a time of transition at UMass Dartmouth as the academic year comes to an end.  While many of our students will return home or start summer internships, the Class of 2013 will be joining the ranks of alumni when they receive their diplomas on May 11 & 12.  In addition to welcoming our newest alumni members, we use this time of year to recognize the Class of 1963 celebrating their 50th reunion.  We congratulate both classes on these achievements.

On June 27th we'll host the Golden Graduates Luncheon to celebrate alumni from Bradford Durfee College of Technology, New Bedford Institute of Technology, and Swain School of Design who have graduated fifty plus years ago.  This fall, save the date for Homecoming - September 27-29, 2013.  In addition to athletic games and our alumni tent, we are working with alumni volunteers to plan reunions for the Class of 2003, Orientation Leaders, and alumni from SMU.

Please stay in touch and plan to
join us for an alumni event soon!
