Alumni Weekend 2024 set for April 26-28

Alumni Weekend traditionally brings Augusta University’s alumni community together to relive old times and make new memories with classmates, family and friends. The marathon of events is scheduled for April 26-28, and registration is open.

Over the course of the weekend, numerous alumni banquets for the university’s colleges, schools and organizations will be held throughout Augusta, but three featured events in particular are open to all alumni, their families and friends.

Three featured events everyone is welcome to attend are the President’s Brunch, Pamplin Pop-ups and the Alumni Weekend After Party. The President’s Brunch is especially significant this year as it will be the last one hosted by AU President Brooks A. Keel, PhD, as he is set to retire at the end of June.

Pamplin Pop-ups

Noon to 2 p.m., Saturday, April 27
