A Slice of New York City at the Golleher Alumni House

OC Loves NYC

OC NYC eventAlumni and guests gathered at the Golleher Alumni House to see it transformed to New York City for the the OC ♥ NYC Alumni Networking Event hosted by the College of Communications and the Hispanic/Latino Alumni Chapter on October 6. Before entering the event, attendees “took a ride” in the Cash Cab where they were put to the test with Cal State Fullerton trivia. Correct answers guaranteed Tuffy bucks which were later redeemed for cool Cal State Fullerton prizes.  A la New York, pizza pie and cheesecake were served while attendees relaxed to cool urban beats from DJ Julian while cocktails like Cosmopolitans, Appletinis and Manhattans were sipped in the Skyline Lounge.  Titan fans also had the special opportunity to take photos with New York Tuffy!

OC NYC eventThe evening also provided an opportunity for alumnus Tony Ortega ’87, ’89 , Editor-in-Chief of The Village Voice to share pearls of wisdom about how he made it in the newspaper industry.  His positive experience at Cal State Fullerton and interactions with professors and fellow students made an impact on his path in life and gave him valuable tools for his future goals.

OC NYC eventPresidents of the College of Communications and the Hispanic/Latino Chapters, Ashley Gonzalez’06 and Dorissa Martinez ’00 respectively, welcomed Ortega and expressed, "We are proud to be able to host an alumnus of Ortega’s caliber and it was inspiring to hear that he credited his successes to Cal State Fullerton."
