Spotlight on the SoCal Alumni Alliance

The SoCal Alumni Alliance creates opportunities for Tigers to connect on the West Coast. The longest-running regional alliance, SoCal alumni have enjoyed happy hours, networking events and a Dodgers game. Most recently, they held a delicious crab
feast hosted by Discovery Channel’s “Undercover Billionaire” Glen Stearns ’87, which was planned by Stearns and fellow volunteer committee members Brett Glatman ’05 and
Pat Maxon ’87. Over 60 people—whose grad years spanned five decades—attended the event in Newport Coast, savoring authentic Maryland crabs flown in from Baltimore.

Alumni Events

California Weekend

Through the generosity of Shelly Strong ’90, EVP and head of physical production at Amblin Partners, TU alumni were treated to a private screening of 1917 on Jan. 17. The fun continued at brunch in Santa Monica on Saturday and culminated with a Sunday brunch in San Diego.

Alumni Alliance Events

Both well-established and brand-new alliances began the year with fantastic events.

Boston Brunch and Basketball Game

Alumni met in Boston for a brunch generously hosted by Kathleen McQuiggan ’90 at her home. Afterward, the group headed to the Cabot Physical Education Center to watch the TU women’s basketball team take on Northeastern University.

Philadelphia Flower Show

Alumni living in Baltimore and Philadelphia experienced the beauty of a Mediterranean garden during their visit to the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show on its opening day. Beforehand, they attended a special lunch at Maggiano’s Little Italy.
