Commemorating milestones, reminiscing with friends, celebrating Homecoming. Medical School alumni did all that and more on campus during the Medical School Alumni Celebration, October 4–6.  

Besides reconnecting with classmates, alumni heard from Dean Jakub Tolar, M.D., Ph.D., who shared his vision for the Medical School, and they met current students and faculty during a luncheon program on health and wellness. 

A pregame breakfast and Gophers’ Homecoming football game topped off the festivities for the celebrating classes of 1963, 1968, 1978, 1983, 1988, 1993, and 2008.
