We hope that you will join us throughout 2024 for events and programming related to the centennial anniversary, which will include an increased number of regional alumni gatherings, esteemed speakers, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals oral arguments on campus, a kick-off party, and much more.
The year-long celebration will bring together alumni from across the nation as we move into our next hundred years together while honoring the events of the last hundred years that created the foundation for who we have become.
