Join us for the 2011 Homecoming Breakfast at the Bayer School!
Dear Science Graduate,
I want to extend my warmest invitation and encouragement to join us on Saturday, October 1, at 8:30 a.m. for a homecoming breakfast for alumni of the Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences.
If you earned your degree before 1994, you are a graduate of the former School of Arts and Sciences. Whether you are a more recent graduate from the Bayer School, or whether you are a biology, chemistry, or physics graduate from the era in which we were still part of the College of Arts and Sciences, you are a science alumnus or alumna and we consider you part of the proud tradition and family of the Bayer School. Come and learn about the transformations in science research and education that have occurred since your time on the Bluff.
We will host the breakfast in the ground floor foyer of Mellon Hall, in arm's length of the bust of Antoine Lavoisier which overlooks our foyer. Since this is Homecoming weekend, I would also like to encourage you to spend the day on campus and take in the atmosphere and the many changes that our campus and our School have witnessed. But I would especially like to share with you news about the ground-breaking research that our faculty and our students are carrying out.
You can also learn about how we are promoting a more diverse scientific workforce and how we are reaching out in many ways to positively impact STEM education, particularly at the secondary level. Learn about the remarkable success of our faculty in building a world-class array of scientific instrumentation that enables our students to receive hands-on training with some of the most advanced methods and equipment available. We would like to share with you the accomplishments of our students and our faculty, and we also want to learn about your lives and your accomplishments as science alumni of Duquesne University.

I look forward to welcoming you back to campus!
