A view east from the Kravis Center during Alumni Weekend

By Amanda Kandasamy ’20

This weekend, Claremont McKenna College celebrates Alumni Weekend not only by playing host to alumni and guests, but also by featuring a number of performing artists set to entertain and dazzle attendees throughout the weekend. Recording artists Meaghan Maples, Spirit of Oya, DJ JiJi Sweet, and Sheldon and Cunnane, will all perform live over the course of the three days, and magician Magic Grimm is set to wow the crowd at Monte Carlo.

Shamil Hargovan ’10 and Louis-Victor (LV) Jadavji '15

An internship at Hewlett-Packard working in 3D printing with friend and Claremont McKenna College alumnus Shamil Hargovan ’10 never materialized like Louis-Victor (LV) Jadavji ’15 had originally hoped when he completed the Silicon Valley Program. However, three months after Jadavji began an excellent job elsewhere, the two friends sat in a café and had a conversation that dramatically changed the path of their careers.

Seventy-five years after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the world once again turned its eyes to events happening in the Pacific. Thousands gathered on Dec. 7, 2016, at the site of the infamous attack for National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day and the 75th anniversary of the tragic events that propelled the United States into World War II and drastically altered the lives of millions.
