Registration is open for the BADA 50th Reunion!

BADA is taking over Hanover for our 50th Reunion on May 27-29, 2022!

Will we see you there?

On behalf of the BADA 50th Reunion Planning Committee, we hope you will join us for a special multi-day 50th reunion program that includes cross-cutting conversations, featuring Dartmouth faculty, students, and amazing alums from across the years. During this 3-day celebration, there will be opportunities to recognize, honor, and uplift BADA members and supporters, as well as time to reconnect with friends both old and new.

Register for our 50th Reunion now!

See who else is going (note: this link only lists the people who opted-in to have their registration visible): 

The Reunion Program begins the afternoon of Friday, May 27, and will run through Sunday, May 29. Some of the highlights of the schedule appear below. Make sure you register now because fees will increase May 1. We’ve also secured courtesy group blocks at several hotels in the area based on price and availability that weekend, but rooms will not last long. Please make your reservations at these hotels or contact other area hotels, Airbnbs, and so forth as soon as possible.

In solidarity,
