FAQ

Didn’t this event used to be called Alumni Weekend?

Yes. Alumni Weekends have been a treasured tradition for Kenan-Flagler Business School and will continue to be in the future. Our team elected to re-imagine this special in-person gathering in the virtual landscape. Hosting it during the week where participants can join in as they so choose from wherever they are in the world connects to our School’s commitment to inclusion and to make it possible for more to join.

If I’m not in a class reunion year, can I attend Alumni Week 2021?

Absolutely! 2021 Alumni Week programming is available to all Kenan-Flagler alumni, regardless of your graduation year. There will be special reunions for those who graduated in the following years: ‘0, ‘1, 5’, and ‘6.

Is there a cost associated with Alumni Week 2021?

No. All Alumni Week 2021 events are free and open to alumni, students, donors and friends, parents, faculty and staff.

Will there be virtual gatherings for classes in their milestone years?

Yes! Alumni who graduated in ‘0 and ‘5 years will have the chance to make-up from last year’s canceled festivities. Additionally, our ‘1 and ‘6 years will be celebrating their current milestones.
