Our first signature event of the year, the 2nd Annual Viterbi Alumni & Student Mixer, was a success!! After planning all summer and start of school, we finally got to the big day. The senators for all of the engineering departments came out in business casual attire to help out, and we worked together to cater to both the graduate student body as well as the alumni. Dean Yortsos was able to stop by during the lunch portion of the event, and we got a great picture with him as you can see above.
Approximately 40 alumni returned and served on panels for our students. Almost every department had its own panel (AME+ASTE and CE+ISE were combined together because of related fields), and everyone got to mix and mingle while munching on deserts on the Engineering Quad. I got to meet a lot of impressive professionals as well as previous VGSA senators and executive board members. Their support for the current senate has been incredible, and the event honestly would not have been as successful without them. Our senate definitely grew closer throughout managing the event, and now we’re gearing up for our second signature event this fall – the Viterbi Ball! Make sure to RSVP here and look out for more details as we get closer to Halloween!!
