2010 marked the 25th anniversary of the first international affairs dual major graduating class. To begin the celebration, held on October 8th during UNH Homecoming weekend, CIE held a pre-game tent reception at Boulder Field.

That evening, approximately 90 faculty, staff, IA alumni and special friends of the center gathered at The One Hundred Club in Portsmouth. Alumni attended from as far back as the Class of 1987 and from as far away as China! It was truly a wonderful and spirited celebration.
