September  2016
There are a few big names in sports that when mentioned make us all feel nostalgic. Vin Scully is one of those names. This year's Dodger Day is a real treat and I look forward to sharing this unique experience with hundreds of alumni, students, faculty, staff and community friends. From the privately chartered Metrolink train experience to being at such a historic game, it's definitely going to be a great one. I'd also like to encourage our alumni and friends to participate in our October 8 President's Dinner & Concert featuring one of the 1980's best pianists, Bruce Hornsby. Not only will we have great music, but also we will be at the beautiful Ojai Libby Bowl and you'll be supporting CI students. Here's to a great fall!
