April 21st – Admitted Students Reception

The Brown Club of San Diego teamed up with the Brown Alumni Schools Committee to congratulate admitted students and help them make one of the most important decisions of their lives: picking a college with a cool mascot. As always, there is a particular value in attendance by alumni who have graduated within the last ten years but all alumni who have enthusiasm for talking about their Brown experiences are most welcome.
