the Members of the Class of 1970!
Homecoming is by far the
busiest and most exciting time for the Alumni Relations staff. The
staff is grateful for the opportunity to work with your class and
wish to congratulate you for the important milestone - 40 years!
Be on the lookout for the Gallaudet Today
Newsletter in August. It will have an insert - Homecoming schedule
and information. In addition to the schedule of general
activities, there will be private events arranged by your class.
FYI, alumni receive Gallaudet Today Newsletter in mail twice a
year. If you have not received one, it may mean that we do not
have your current address. It does not matter if it is your first
visit here in a long time or if you are a frequent visitor, we
welcome you as a family member! Hope to see you this fall!
