ALUMNI DAY: JUNE 25, 2016
Medal Request process has ended on June 3th, 2016. You may get a medal without your name from our office (President's Building, 1st Floor) on Alumni Day.
The traditional ODTÜ Alumni Day takes place each year on our Ankara campus. On this day, to which all ODTÜ alumni are invited, a medal is presented to mark the 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th, 45th, 50th, and 55th graduation anniversary of the concerned alumni. Following a variety of activities on this day, which enables our alumni to congregate, the medals of those in their 10th, 20th, 30th and 40th year of graduation are presented at their departments, whereas the medals of our graduates in their 45th, 50th and 55th year are presented by our President at the Culture and Convention Center.
The Alumni Day, which takes place the day before the Commencement Ceremony each year in accordance with the Academic Calendar drawn up by the University Senate, was planned for July 2, 2016 this year. However, our alumni have intensely requested that the event take place a week earlier due to the fact that July 2, 2016 falls into the week of Eid-al Fitr. Accordingly, the matter has been reconsidered and the new date for the Alumni Day has been set as June 25, 2016.
The goal of ODTÜ Alumni Day is to have classmates come together and to enable as many graduates as possible to interact among themselves and the university. Therefore, the change in the date of the Alumni Day is important both in terms of our alumni and our university.
We await you, our esteemed graduates, for the Alumni Day on Saturday, June 25, 2016.
Further details regarding the Alumni Day will later be shared on this page.Kind regards,
Office of Alumni Communication, ODTÜ
