Dinner with Twelve 49ers

A signature Alumni program, “Dinner with Twelve 49ers,”  brings together one alumna or alumnus with 10 students and one faculty member for a special night of “Beach” camaraderie.

In most cases, alumni host the dinner at their home. The intimate dinner setting creates a forum where students can freely seek career advice from an alumna or alumnus. This program is a unique occasion for alumni and students to connect and build impactful, lasting relationships.
