Pacific Dugoni Passion and Pride Alive at Asilomar

It is always a pleasure for me to attend student and alumni gatherings and see that the Pacific Dugoni spirit is alive and well. The passion for Pacific Dugoni among our future graduates as well as those celebrating class reunions is extraordinary. It is clear the friendships that students build during their time here continues on for many years.

The most recent retreat was held the first weekend of February at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove. The annual event provided a chance for the Class of 2013 to officially gather one last time as a group. Others in attendance included faculty, staff and administrators, the 20-year reunion class of 1993 and the five-year reunion class of 2008. This year’s retreat featured a continuing education course by Dave Weber, commercial exhibits, table clinics and many opportunities to socialize, including karaoke singing on Friday night and a talent show on Saturday night. The California coast provided a stunning backdrop to the weekend's activities.

The Asilomar event is a unique Pacific Dugoni tradition that provides another opportunity for students and alumni to build friendships for a lifetime.
