Alumni Converge at Oak Hour

The First and Main Sports Lounge in Los Altos was buzzing with activity October 12 at the first ever “Oak Hour” alumni gathering.

Alumni from both the traditional and Professional Studies programs were in attendance, and class years spanned from the '80s to the present. Participants caught up with old friends and reminisced about their college days.

The meet-up was organized by Sean Spanek '99 and Rob Rius '01.

“We received multiple compliments for hosting the event,” said Spanek, “and I think everyone who was there really wants to see this grow and become a success.”

Spanek added that meet-ups like this provide alumni a valuable opportunity to network with other professionals. Spurred by the positive reception of this first get-together, he plans to arrange more Oak Hour events in the near future.

“If we don't do one around the holidays, we will definitely do one to kick off 2011.”
