A strong CMC alumni networking effort is spreading across the US and could come to a city near you.

The brainchild of Aron Khurana ’09 and Rick Voit ’78 from the Chicago Chapter of the CMC Alumni Association, the program aims to help CMC job-seekers by connecting them to other alums in the cities where they’d like to work.

Eric Liu

Former White House speechwriter and Deputy Domestic Policy Advisor, Eric Liu spoke at the Athenaeum on Thursday, September 12. The title of his talk was  “Democracy is for Amateurs.”

Speaking to an audience of mostly CMC freshmen as this year’s freshman class speaker, Liu began with the question “What does it mean to be a citizen?”

Liu outlined two “moments of truth”—that facing the Millennial generation in defining itself instead of allowing others to define it, and a moment of truth for the country.

Living on One’s “Change Series” launched its first two mini episodes on Sept. 3. This is an eight-part series following the experiences of Chris Temple ’12, Zach Ingrasci ’12, Sean Leonard and Ryan Christofferson, who lived on a mere $1 a day for eight weeks in rural Guatemala. Each episode focuses on a specific and pressing development topic faced by the young men (and their community), including access to clean water, nutrition, education, employment, finance and disasters. Each segment is paired with additional resources to help viewers take action.

Brentt Baltimore

Some people can’t quite figure Brentt Baltimore ’10. Others, when they find out the work he does and what he’s sacrificed to do it, know all they need to know about what kind of a guy he is.

You see, Baltimore, 24, is making news for having turned down a six-figure job at a Los Angeles hedge fund in favor of a $33,000-a-year position at a venture capital firm in Detroit––despite having $38,000 in student loan debt.
