Alumni BBQ Shindig
The department put on its first annual Alumni BBQ Shindig on Friday July 16, 2010. Of course, this was the hottest day of the year, but we still had a great turn out.
The Shindig brought out a wide range of alums; undergraduates, masters, and Ph.D. from all over. While most folks were from the San Diego area, alumni from Orange County, Arizona and Michigan also attended. Current faculty and staff were also in attendance, along with a few emeritus faculty. We also had a few students hanging out by the food table. I think we can all remember the “starving student” period.
Department Chair Stuart Aitken and Ph.D. Advisor Doug Stow were the grill masters for the event.
