Please mark your calendars for March 27–29 when we will celebrate Alumni Weekend at Owen. It will be my first as dean, and I look forward to welcoming you and your families back to campus—and I'm particularly excited to catch up with those of you I taught back in the '90s.
Alumni Weekend is the perfect time to reconnect with Owen, your friends, classmates and faculty mentors. The collegial air and family atmosphere that were important to you are alive and well here today. You will experience them in all of our activities, from the Thursday night social with students to Saturday's Community Celebration Dinner.
I hope that you will make a gift to the school in honor of Alumni Weekend. Your support will make a real difference at Owen and help your class meet its fundraising goals while providing today's students with the same outstanding experience you remember.
From great developments in job placement to the innovative steps we are taking to enhance learning opportunities, these are exciting times at Owen. Come see for yourself all that's happening at your business school.

Dean, Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management
