Thank you to everyone who joined from around the world for this year’s virtual Global Happy Hour! As the program began, the roar of Lion pride worldwide shook the earth causing a 3.4 earthquake here in Westchester, CA. More than 500 Lions registered for the event from 10 countries and 22 states.

A special thank you to the over 100 host committee members dedicated to bringing our Lion family together for one truly international event! Even Lions from time zones a day ahead of us raised a morning glass to celebrate. 

Alumni welcomed the Classes of 2020 and 2021 to the Alumni Association with warm toasts from around the world. See the alumni toasts from around the world here.

Make a gift of any size to the area that was the most impactful to your time on campus and help elevate students and strengthen our educational experience.

Special thanks to our breakout room hosts!
