Alumni news
On the evening of Saturday, July 1, the Alumni Office hosted a WesternU Reception in Long Beach during the California Veterinary Medical Association’s Pacific Veterinary Conference. Nearly 50 alumni, students, faculty, staff, and guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and drinks poolside at the Hyatt Regency hotel as they networked with one another.
