Since 2017, members of the Purdue business school alumni family have gathered on the first Thursday of November to salute the school’s history and celebrate its future. What started modestly with toasts in 11 locations now includes dozens of gatherings in different cities across the globe. Since its inception, the event has grown to span multiple time zones with hosts from Seattle to Orlando in the U.S. and to Mumbai, Seoul, and other locations worldwide.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the 2023 toast at the locations below. It was great to reconnect with classmates and fellow alumni while saluting the past and future of Purdue's Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. School of Business. See you again next year!
