Dear Alternative Breaks @ UCSD Alumni,

The AB Alumni Coalition (ABAC) would like to invite you to come and connect with us during UCSD’s Homecoming Weekend.  This opportunity will allow you to reunite with new and former AB members.
Our KICKOFF event will be on Saturday, October 17th during UCSD Alumni Homecoming Weekend.  Whether you’re near or far from campus, we’d like you join us for our first event. We are participating in a scavenger hunt on campus.  It will give you the opportunity to team up with ABAC members and explore the newest spaces on campus by deciphering clues about campus places and historic events.  It’s an interactive event that will challenge everyone!
Click on the following link to register for this event today! All participants will receive breakfast and a spirited UCSD collectable. Prizes will also be given out for the winning teams.  So register today* or form a team* with your past AB group and register together!

If you have the time and can stay a little longer to catch up with old friends, join us after the hunt at The Pub.  Soda and food will be served.  You can also register for this event at the same link. Please be sure to click on the box next to Scavenger Hunt and Affinity Group Reunion: Alternative Breaks.

We look forward to seeing you there! If you have any questions, please contact ABAC at cly@ucsd.edu.

* Deadline to register is October 9.
