Greetings fellow grads! It is my pleasure to welcome you to Alumni Weekend 2012 at the University of Guelph. There are many wonderful events and activities planned for June 15-17 and I hope you will take this opportunity to head back to campus and reconnect with friends and classmates from your days at U of G.
Alumni Weekend promises to be a great celebration seeing as the OVC is celebrating its 150th anniversary and is a wonderful time for sharing memories of our days spent together. I look forward to seeing you back on campus!
