Although we would have loved to invite everyone back to campus to celebrate our 100th anniversary, with the pandemic it is not possible. Even with the campus reopening in the Fall, we think that most of you have other ideas for travel plans, and we understand.

Thus, we cordially invite all of our alums and friends to attend a virtual celebration of the Department of Astronomy’s 100th year on August 21st at 11am (central time). Visit this link to register and receive the meeting URL. We plan on some history, some stories of our graduates, and some ideas for our future. We will leave some time for reminiscing by attendees. Please join us for this celebration. We want to see as many of our alums and friends as possible.
