Reunion 2016

From the Winter 2017 edition of Vanderbilt Business

For the past eight years, Owen has celebrated its Alumni Weekend in April. Last October, Owen rejoined the rest of Vanderbilt in celebrating Reunion in the fall.

In addition to Owen’s traditional wine and cheese night—as well as the Saturday night dinner honoring this year’s Distinguished Alumni Award winner, Virginia “Gigi” Lazenby, BA’67, MBA’73— alumni were able to participate in a range of events, from Vanderbilt lectures to football tailgates.

Save the date for the next Reunion on October 6 and 7, 2017.
