Extern Week 2012 As part of Extern Week, the second week in January, events for alumni and students were held in Boston, New York, Philadephia, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. The event in San Francisco coincided with an Evening with the President reception. These events provide an occasion for students to network with local alumni and offer an opportunity to recognize the alumni extern sponsors and hosts who make the program such a success. We thank James Gregory ’85, Donald McMinn ’86, Peter ’60 and Barbara Hopf Offenhartz ’58, and Marc Sonnenfeld ’68 for hosting these events.
