This weekend was alumni weekend, where Yale SOM alumni were invited back to campus to catch up with each other and also current students. I attended an alumni mingle and panel discussion at the Omni Hotel, during which we discussed the importance of relationship management. The members of the distinguished panel included alumni like Edward J. De La Rosa, Martha Finn Brooks and current students.
After the discussion, there was time to mingle with the alumni. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to speak to Ranji Nagaswami, who gave a very insightful speech during our recent orientation. Overall, it was very heartening to see such active participation from our alumni, which I think is a product of SOM's small yet very tight-knit community.
