Olin Celebration Weekend

April 3-4, 2020

We regret to inform you that Graduate Reunion and the Distinguished Alumni Awards Gala have been canceled due to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Washington University in St. Louis is committed to the health and well-being of our community. Given recent guidance from the CDC on limiting the spread of COVID-19, as a precautionary measure, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the weekend's events.  

We encourage you to visit the Washington University Emergency Management website to learn about the university’s response to COVID-19 and how we are trying to reduce the risk to our community and to the region.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Office of Olin Advancement at olin.alumni@wustl.edu or 314.935.2977. 

Thank you for your understanding.
