Events

 The MCBGSAA organizes several events each year to facilitate meetings between students and alumni of all years. Our major gatherings include a social/happy hour and an alumni seminar each fall and spring. We also recently held a picnic in Tilden Park.

We also facilitate a number of smaller gatherings, including roundtables and coffee chats. If you are an alum interested in speaking with current students about your post-MCB career, we'd love to hear from you. Please visit the photos tab to see photos, and please feel free to contact us with feedback or suggestions for future events!
