The American InterContinental University (AIU) Alumni Association gathered on Friday, July 27th, to celebrate alumni and graduate success at Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse in downtown Chicago.
Featured guest and AIU graduation keynote speaker Ben Stein attended the event, meeting with alumni association members, 4.0 GPA graduates, AIU faculty and staff, as well as friends and family members. Mr. Stein was incredibly gracious to each graduate and alumni member he met, asking about their degree program and future plans, while congratulating them on their academic milestones. Later, during a raffle drawing, Mr. Stein was able to recall details about alumni members as he called their names to receive a gift bag of AIU Alumni Association memorabilia.
George Miller, AIU President, and Dr. Joy Richman, Vice President of Academic Affairs, each spoke during the event as well, thanking the attendees and recognizing the 4.0 graduates in attendance for their stellar academic achievement. Mr. Felipe Aguiar, the 2012 AIU Distinguished Alumni Award recipient, was also in attendance with his family.
Overall, the event was a great success and wonderful celebration of our alumni achievements in and out of the classroom.
