Bon Voyage Party for New LSE Students

The 2007 Bon Voyage party of the SF alumni was a HUGE success!

The British-styled venue provided the perfect backdrop to the newly-admitted students' sendoff. We toasted the new admits with a complimentary glass of champagne. The heavy snacks were also well-received.

Most of the attendees were students, who, by the end of the evening had exchanged emails, addresses and had made plans for the future in London. There was a wonderful buzz all throughout the reception, which spilled over into the pub area very quickly. All were excited to begin this new chapter in their lives in London. We wish them all well!

The views from 25 stories above The Embarcadero, overlooking the historic Ferry Building and the wonders of San Francisco Bay were a perfect venue for a happy send off for a dozen new students on August 25. The Bon Voyage attracted a crowd of new students and alumni who created an instant team of informative coaches. The food and drink were co-sponsored by Doug Mandell, principal the Mandell Law Group, PC (home of the sky-scraper venue) and Paul Ebner of Barclays Global Investors.

More than 80 alumni celebrated the visit of Sir Howard Davies, Director of the LSE at an elegant reception held at the Metropolitan Club in San Francisco. Sir Howard socialized with alumni over drinks and hors d'oeuvres, and then updated everyone on a range of topics relating to the School: new initiatives with regard to academic courses, plans for expansion, with the purchase of the Public Trust Office (click here view website NEWS article), and the LSE's overall financial status.
