Dear Robinson College,

We are mere weeks away from the quintessential Cambridge sporting event -- the Boat Race! We will be organizing a viewing party on March 24th so everyone can cheer on the Light Blues. GDBO! More information is below. 

Events and Notices

Thursday, March 1: First Thursday Drinks

Come imbibe with us in the Willard Hotel, one of America's most historic establishments. The Drinks is an elegant, but low-key event where you can enjoy a great mix of alumni of all ages, degree programs, and life experiences, with lots to discuss in a friendly and easygoing environment. Catch up with old friends and make new ones! Drinks start at 6:30 PM, but people trickle in throughout the evening.

Monday, March 12: LSE Book Event and Lecture

Our friends at LSE are hosting Steven Payson to discuss his new book How Economics Professors Can Stop Failing Us: The Discipline at a Crossroads. A Q & A and networking reception with complementary drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be provided. A similar event is scheduled for April 9th, stay tuned in next month's newsletter for additional details.
