Dine with Alumni Event Connects With Students
October 28, 2013
McGeorge hosted its annual Dine with Alumni event at the Sutter Club in downtown Sacramento on Friday, Oct. 18, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The always-popular event had a record turn out this year, including 140 students and 40 alumni.
At Dine with Alumni students and alumni made meaningful connections, with tables arranged by legal specialization and geographic location. Each guest was provided with a card with conversation starters and a few questions to answer about those at their table. Those who completed the cards were entered to win raffle prizes such as Starbucks gift cards and McGeorge gear.
Erin Dunston, '99, President of the Alumni Board, made remarks at the pre-dinner reception about the importance of connecting with the greater McGeorge community. Sarra Ziari, Senior Development Officer, opened the formal program with an ice breaker, and later in the evening, Molly Stafford, Interim Director of the Career Development Office, gave an overview of the Alumni-Mentor Network and announced the raffle prize winners. After dinner, guests networked with each other until the event's end.
