On November 12th, over forty LSJ alumni, faculty, and staff gathered at The District Lounge for the first alumni happy hour of the year. Alumni graduating as far back as 1988 (when LSJ was formerly named 'SoJu', or 'Societies & Justice') gathered to swap memories of LSJ and to connect with friends and professors. As the first alumni event since June convocation, the event welcomed the Class of 2015 to the LSJ alumni network. Alums working in diverse career fields were able to mingle with more recent alums, discussing their work in law, non-profits, criminal justice, advocacy, and more. Attendees brought business cards to enter a raffle for cool LSJ swag, including a t-shirt, a mug, and a canvas tote bag.
Stay tuned for upcoming alumni events, including the Winter Day of Service, where alumni and current students will lend a hand volunteering at the Downtown Emergency Services Center on Saturday February, 20th, with a tentative start time of 12 noon. Check out this story on the 2014 DESC Day of Service to learn more about how LSJ gives back.
