Alumni Dinner at Minneapolis 2007

Our very first American alumni gathering was held in Minneapolis in June 1, 2007.  Fulbright Center staff were attending an annual international education conference and visiting the University of Minnesota ‘s  Finnish Language Department and invited local alumni of the Finnish Fulbright program to join them for dinner.  This spontaneous get-together created a model for future events and jump-started our alumni initiative.  We have come a long way since 2007 and thank you to those first alumni who made this idea a reality.
