Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:
Several Irish names in the news recently, in case you didn’t catch them … First, I’m sad to say that Prof. Emil Hofman passed away on July 11th. Prof. Hofman, who everyone in my time knew as “Emil” was one of those huge contributors to the University’s culture. Emil was Dean of the First Year of Studies during my time at ND, and was also my Chemistry professor (with an unmatched pageantry surrounding his final exams … ask one of us old-timers about that…). RIP, Prof. Hofman, we’ll miss you.
In happier news, ND Alumni made several appearances at ESPN’s ESPY awards, with Shannon Boxx ’99 on the Team of the Year, Skylar Diggins ’13 taking Best WNBA Player and Danielle Green ’99 taking home the Pat Tillman Award for Service. Congratulations to them all!
So, speaking of “happy” … we have not one, but two happy hour opportunities for you, one targeted at Young Alumni, and one at Professionals … if you meet both qualifications, then lucky you! We also have a couple of fantastic annual events coming up fast, the Student Sendoff and Padres game … read on for the details.
