The California Southern University Alumni Association has embarked upon a full slate of networking events for association members and other alumni, current learners, faculty and staff. The schedule offers something for everyone, whether you’re a sports fan, a wine connoisseur—or even a fitness buff.
The schedule got underway in May, at the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists annual conference in Los Angeles. More than 30 alumni, learners and staff attended a mixer at the Hilton’s Landings Bar—in the event’s host hotel—to enjoy appetizers and drinks, network and discuss the day’s breakout sessions.
The following month, the alumni association visited the Funk Zone in the breathtaking and historic Presidio neighborhood in Santa Barbara for a day of wine tasting, exploring the wide variety of art galleries and sampling some of the area’s many fine-dining options.
In late July, a contingent of more than 60 members of the CalSouthern family saw the visiting Boston Red Sox break the hearts of the hometown fans by scoring five runs in the final inning to beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Anaheim Stadium, in an extremely exciting game. A fantastic time was had by all, regardless of team loyalty.
On Sunday, August 7, CalSouthern hosted the first annual New Graduates and Alumni Association Member Post-Graduation Brunch. Held the day following CalSouthern’s commencement ceremony, the brunch gave the new graduates time to reflect upon the culmination of their educational journeys with members of the CalSouthern faculty and staff. Held at Irvine’s popular Del Frisco’s Grille, the brunch was the perfect way to end a very special weekend.
On September 25, association members and other guests will be running (or walking) the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K in Newport Beach. It’s a great event for a great cause, and the CalSouthern racers will re-fuel post-run at Le Pain Quotidien.
A San Diego Alumni Mixer will be held in the fall and an open house at CalSouthern’s new campus will take place in the new year. Look for dates and details to be released soon!
