Summer Happy Hour
More than 50 alumni and friends gathered on Atlantic City’s renowned Steel Pier on July 27 for the annual USciences Happy Hour at the Shore. Ocean breezes, low 80s temperature, and a canopy kept guests cool while sipping cocktails and catching up with each other on our private deck. The event was co-sponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations and the Alumni Association. See more photos on Facebook here.
