For the third year in a row, CEU called together some of its most distinguished alumni to say ‘thank you.’

Part of Alumni Reunion Weekend, the President’s Reception drew more than 50 honored alumni and friends to Hotel InterContinental Budapest on Saturday, May 5. SEE PHOTOS.

Hosted by President and Rector Michael Ignatieff, the invitation-only event featured distinguished alumni donors and volunteers, members of the CEU Milestone and Loyalty societies, alumni-supported students and others.

The rector praised attendees for their support of the university, through fundraising and recruiting. Noting the presence of several children of alumni, spoke of CEU's multi generational future.

“I’m already thinking that you are coming to CEU,” he said.

The gathering also featured a networking session, hosted by Serge Sych (IRES '97, LEGS '99), Vice President for Enrollment, Careers and Alumni Relations, in which attendees spoke of the impact CEU has had on their current lives. Also, alumnus Orsat Miljanic (LEGS ’94) was presented with the CEU Alumni Impact Award.

The reception was a great celebration of CEU’s most dedicated alumni, and a great kickoff for CEUone: Alumni Reunion Gala, which followed immediately after. Thanks to everyone who made it a great event!
