Gradually taking its form, METU Alumni Day is a powerful event celebrated since 1991 with the participation of the alumni from all classes. Memorial medals containing the names of the alumni are presented to the alumni to mark the 10 th, 20 th, 30 th, 40th, 45 th , 50 th and 55 th graduation anniversary on the Alumni Day.
Alumni Day celebrated in late June or early July for a long time will be celebrated on Saturday, June 29, 2019 this year. The end of June is also a good time for our alumni around the world; many people from abroad come and participate in this special event. Recently, the number of the METU alumni who come from other countries is on the increase.
On Alumni Day, the alumni come together and collective activities are performed in the morning. In the afternoon, they come together at departments and “Golden Years” have a special ceremony held at the Culture and Convention Center (CCC). Departments are planning their own activities. In addition to providing an environment where the alumni come together and see one another, the ceremony where the memorial medals are presented to the alumni to mark the 10 th, 20 th, 30 th, 40th and 45 th graduation anniversary is included in their program. Apart from these, departments can also organize their own events.
For the alumni who will celebrate their 50 th and 55 th year graduation anniversary, the ceremony is held in CCC in the afternoon. The alumni of these years receive their medals from the METU President.
