Alumni, faculty and staff gathered for a lively College of Business Alumni Holiday Reception at Florida International University (FIU) on December 10, 2014. This year the event, held at the Special Events Center, was open to graduates of both the R. Kirk Landon Undergraduate School of Business and the Alvah H. Chapman Jr. Graduate School of Business.
Food, drink and live music put everyone in the holiday spirit as guests, numbering almost 100, reminisced, got caught up and made new connections.
