Los Angeles Regional Reception
Wednesday, 16 January 2013 | 7 – 9 p.m.
CBS Studio Center | 4024 Radford Avenue | Studio City, Calif.
Nearly 100 alumni, parents, and friends of Fordham gathered at CBS Studios in Studio City, Calif., on Jan. 16, for the annual Los Angeles Regional Reception. Joining them were a dozen local high school seniors who have been accepted to Fordham and who brought their parents to learn more about the University. Armando Nunez, GSB '82, president and chief executive officer of the CBS Global Distribution Group, arranged for the event to take place on the set of Entertainment Tonight. With the famous ET lights as a backdrop, Nuñez welcomed the crowd and talked about his Fordham experience. Michael Griffin, assistant vice president for alumni relations, and John Buckley, associate vice president for undergraduate enrollment, gave updates on their areas. Fordham University President Joseph M. McShane, S.J., closed the evening with a comprehensive overview of what's happening at the University—from the opening of the renovated Hughes Hall as the new home of the Gabelli School of Business to the recent visit by Stephen Colbert and Timothy Cardinal Dolan—giving the alumni many reasons to be proud and the prospective students and parents even more reasons to join the Fordham family.
