California Alumni Dinner

Feb 12 2015

Visiting San Francisco this week for the IxDA conference, LIta Talarico and Ron Callahan dined with alumni and one former faculty member at Bluestem Brasserie. Like all of our alumni gatherings some of the attendees had not met before, so new connections and networks and future collaborations abound.
