Ten alumni joined us for the first Russian Alumni Reunion Dinner, which was held last month in Moscow. A range of years of graduation and subjects of study made for an interesting evening filled with lively conversations and discussion. Dr. Ija Trapeznikova made a short presentation on her most recent research in the field of Labour Economics. Jennifer Rich, International Officer, was also present to give an update on College life, including news about the Olympics and new scholarships.
The evening was a great success and we hope to continue this with future events. Alumni were pleased to have been given the opportunity to connect with their peers; these relationships will only be strengthened as the community grows.
