“One of the best aspects of being involved in LC Alumni groups is the opportunity to meet and build relationships with fellow alumni that you didn’t cross paths with while you were a student. This has been the most personally rewarding aspect of being on the Board of Alumni for me. The deep friendships I formed while working with my fellow alumni are things I will carry with me even when my term is over. So many wonderful conversations, memories created, and great work done together.” ~ Hanako Imber ’10
