Multicultural Alumni Mini Reunion: October 22, 2016

We celebrate our cultural and ethnic differences,
along with our common bond of being American University alumni. 

Our reunion events give alumni the opportunity to network across generations
and to better engage with today's multicultural students. 

Our presence and participation sets the example for future alumni and is critical
to complete the tapestry this is our colorful alumni network.

Come back home to THE alumni event of the season:
the Multicultural Alumni Mini Reunion at All-American Weekend.
