Thompson Global Internship Program celebrates 5th Anniversary

On Sunday, March 15th, the Thompson Global Internship Program celebrated its fifth year by hosting a reunion at Flames Eatery in San Jose.  35 alumni of the program attended and had a wonderful time renewing acquaintances with former teammates and professors.

The highlight of the evening was a Skype call from Jim Thompson. Dean David Steele and professors William Devincenzi and Jeanne Sawyer also attended. The event, which began at 5:00 PM was supposed to end at 8:00, but many alums were still there when the professors left around 9:30 PM!
