We make about one trip per year to southern California with the express purpose of catching up with our Los Angeles-area alumni. And wow, do we have a good time! With an alumni base as diverse as actors, architects, set designers, writers, visual effects designers, photographers, curators, graphic designers, stylists and more, there is always plenty of lively conversation! Dean Barbara Korner, along with staff members Bob Darrah and Joyce Hoffman will host this event, on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at Maggiano's Little Italy, 189 The Grove Drive, in Los Angeles. The reception, open to all alumni and friends of the College of Arts and Architecture, will run from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Lombardo Room. There is no fee to attend. An array of hors d'oeuvres will be served and a cash bar will be available. Please rsvp no later than February 24 at http://aanda.psu.edu/LA-events, or email Joyce at firstname.lastname@example.org.
