BCOC Hosts An Evening (to remember) With Christina Paxson!

Brown Club Orange County achieved another milestone Friday, July 21st when we were honored to host An Evening With Christina Paxson at the beautiful Newport Coast Community Center.

Guests munched on hors d'oeuvres then listened while President Paxson shared the challenges, goals and aspirations of leading Brown University into the 21st Century, and inspired many questions from the audience.

The OC Brunonians in attendance ended the evening with a renewed sense of community and determination to do our part in ensuring the success of our beloved alma mater now and in the future.
