In Connecticut on August 9, alumnae and current students introduced new students to their vibrant community at a First-year Sendoff Soirée. In addition to talking about the practical matters of college life and calming the anxieties of new first-years, attendees enjoyed a game of Barnard trivia. One of the questions: Which famous alumna launched her business in her former Westport, Conn., home?
On August 8, 11 parents and one recent Barnard graduate gathered for lunch to bring together the Barnard family in Seoul.

Lisa Lin ’98, president of the Barnard Club of Northern California, welcomed new students and parents to Barnard on behalf of local alumnae. Lareina Yee ’95, who carried her Barnard coffee mug, c. 1991, and dressed her kids in CU t-shirts, was happy to host the event on August 11, noting, “It was nice to connect with the current generation of Barnard students.”
