A lot of news to catch up on - a lot in which to be involved!
Alumni Association President's Message

Charles Luu 

There's a lot going on this time of the year with the Alumni Association. First, there was the Reunion, held on February 16. I really had fun visiting and re-connecting - I encourage everyone to plan to attend theirs. Coming up, we've got the selection of the 2013 Distinguished Alumnus of the Year with submissions due March 1 and the Annual Meeting of the Association, March 6, with a call-in by alumni. We look forward to your questions and input! 

- Charles Luu, O.D., '86, Alumni Assoc. President, 2011-2013
