IT WAS A BLAST FROM THE PAST!

The weekend kicked off where it all began, with a Friday tour of campus, tail-gate party, and football game at Westmont. We met up with fellow classmates on Saturday and then had an evening to be remembered at the Villa Ragusa in Campbell. An evening of talking, drinks, reminiscing, dining, reconnecting, and dancing to a live band. Los Gatos Coffee Roasting Company logoWe finished up the celebration with Sunday brunch at The Blue Door at Westgate. Throughout the weekend, our caffeine fixes were FREE at Los Gatos Coffee Roasting Company in Los Gatos.

The Celebration has past, but you can enjoy highlights of the Saturday dinner/dance with interviews with most of the 100+ alumni who attended.
