Chancellor's Reception

The weekend kicked off with a reception on the 12th floor of the Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute, co-hosted by UAMS Chancellor Dan Rahn, M.D., and the Chancellor’s Circle, UAMS’ premier annual giving society.

Showcase and Alumni Luncheons

Alumni from each college broke into groups for two sets of showcase lectures, where they listened and learned about topics from implementation science and precision medicine, to public health in Arkansas and around the globe. Catered lunches followed for each college, hosted by their respective deans.

Southern Supper

Held on both floors of the I. Dodd Wilson Education Building, alumni and guests were treated to a dinner of fried chicken, barbecue, potato salad, and other fixings. The GroanUps played live downstairs, performing hits from past and present. Alumni hit the dance floor early and often, with several couples dancing for most songs.

Golden Graduate Brunch

Brunch was served for all Golden Graduates at The Capital Hotel in Little Rock, where several alumni were staying. Seated amongst several lavishly appointed round tables, alumni picked up where they’d left off the night before. Between plates of eggs benedict and thick-cut bacon, and plenty of coffee, old classmates and friends caught up and made jokes.
