Event description

Description

The Harvard University Muslim Alumni (HUMA) welcomes you to the 6th annual Reunion Dinner! All Harvard affiliates (alumni, students, faculty, etc) and family are invited. HUMA is always excited to see our community grow so all children under the age of 12 attend gratis.

Come reconnect with old friends and meet other Harvard Muslims! The annual dinner brings HUMA members from across the globe to a single venue, building a strong Harvard Muslim community to further HUMA's long-term mission: facilitating professional networking and mentoring, supporting the Muslim community on campus, helping students access Harvard, etc.

Our very own Dr. Hussein Rashid will be giving this year's keynote address. See below for additional information about his work and background.

We are also expanding the weekend activities to provide HUMA members with an additional opportunity to connect with other alumni and current students for a mentoring and networking brunch. The Bagel Brunch will be held at 10am on Sunday in the Adams House Upper Common Room.

Reception & Mixer: 5:30pm-6:30pm

Sunday Agenda
Bagel Brunch: 10am-11:30am (Adams House Upper Common Room)

FAQ

Who is invited?

We are honored to welcome alumni, students, faculty members, research fellows, and staff of any of the Harvard schools (e.g. Harvard Business School), Harvard-affiliated hospitals (e.g. Mass General Hospital), and other Harvard-affiliated institutions (e.g. Rowland Institute).

Is there a networking session?

We know dinner is just not enough for connecting with old friends and getting to know new ones. We plan for this weekend to be a chance to meaningfully connect with other HUMA members. A mixer will take place before the dinner, starting at 5:30pm. Please be sure your information is entered correctly when reserving your ticket as we will use that to make badges

Will there be awesome food?

The HUMA board takes food seriously, and we strive to pick the best caterers we can from the Boston area every year.

Can I bring my family? Will there be babysitting?

Absolutely! While we do not offer babysitting services, the dinner, as with all HUMA events, is very kid friendly. Entry is free for children 12 and under.

How do I get there?

From Harvard Yard, the Harvard School of Public Health is just a 30 minute ride on the M2 or Green Line or a 13 minute drive.
