Seven Cities, One Night: nationwide alumni event returns Oct. 18

Last year, it engaged over 200 alumni in four cities around the country -- this year, we've upped the ante by spreading to seven locations.

Seven Cities, One Night allows alumni to join peers for a reception in their own hometowns. It is an evening of networking, relaxing, catching up and finding out who else is living nearby.

An RSVP is requested but not required -- visit the event page in The Compass. The events are free for WU alumni, and guests are welcome to come along for $10 each (cash only at the door).

The informal receptions will take place this year at the following locations:
