Winter 2016: “Our Brilliant Future”

Reading UCI Magazine’s debut issue, “Our Brilliant Future,” I couldn’t help but take a trip down memory lane.

At my 1975 graduation, I fondly gazed at the structures surrounding Aldrich Park; I would miss them. My M.S. in administration prepped me for careers in public and private sectors. Years later, I left my public sector position as the budget officer for a sizable city to become a project manager for Chevron, where I earned the Chairman’s Award. UCI Extension courses were invaluable along the way. My son is also a graduate, and the UCI health center ingeniously relieved my son-in-law’s debilitating chronic pain. UCI has always been and continues to be an inspiration to me.

I have strolled UCI over the last 40 years witnessing its evolution and its arrival at top-tier status. I have evolved as well and have nearly completed writing my first novel. My goal is to get on The New York Times’ best-seller list before UCI reaches its next major milestone. Shine on brilliantly.

Wow! The magazine is terrific. I’m new to UCI (nearly two months on staff). The magazine is gorgeous and informative without too much text (like the info graphics) and has great pictures (and lots of them) and nice pull-quotes.

I will definitely use the content and share with others.

Great work!

Professor Erwin Chemerinsky’s writing (and speaking) proves to this learner that channeling might be for real!

Did the great John Steinbeck write his piece?

His story “A Different Path” also proves what I have long believed: that a superior brain will eventually succeed, even when raised in early dire circumstances.
