Dinner with 12 Buffs
April 19-22, alumni and students across the U.S. will dine together during the fourth annual Dinner with 12 Buffs. More than 30 alumni hosts as near as Boulder and as far away as New Jersey will open their homes to an intimate group of Buffs for a casual meal and camaraderie.
Last year, financial executive Erik Evans (Math, Phys’00) hosted a fajita dinner for 15 alumni in his approximately 600-square-foot apartment on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. There was CU talk, of course, but another theme emerged.
“Mostly we talked about the struggle,” said Evans. “The struggle of daily life in New York City and what each of us did. It was a really welcome reprieve.”
Lisa Corboy (Mktg’91) hosted several students in Louisville, Colo., for salmon, and will host again this year.
“We have two children at CU now, so we love staying in contact with the student body!” she said. “It helps keep us young.”
Students and graduates of the past decade are encouraged to attend. More information.
