Despite the threat of Hurricane Sandy, alumni reunited for the 2012 Homecoming Reception. This marks the third year in a row that an alumnus gave the Friday seminar. Dr. Laura Terry (W&M 03), now a post-doctoral researcher at Princeton University, gave a seminar entitled "Cellular and viral kinases intersect to regulate human cytomegalovirus replication". Alumni interested in giving a seminar during Homecoming are encouraged to [[biology,contact the department]].

After the seminar and Homecoming parade, a reception was held in the greenhouse. Alumni coming back for their first reunion mingled with those celebrating a 50th reunion! Alumni and guests shared drinks and snacks with fellow alumni, current students, current faculty, and emeritus faculty.  Scroll through the photos above to see if you recognize the 2012 reunion.
