All-Alumni Theater Afternoon Set for April 15

The next All-Alumni Theater Afternoon will be held Sunday, April 15, 2018.

The event features a reception and entertainment starting at 12:30 p.m., followed by the Livingston Theatre Company’s performance of Legally Blonde at 2 p.m. Theater Afternoon tickets are now available.

About the show: 

Legally Blonde tells the story of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner.

She discovers how her knowledge of the law can help others, and successfully defends exercise queen Brooke Wyndham in a murder trial.


LAA Salutes Distinguished Alumni, Livingston Legacy Honorees

On March 20, 2018, the LAA celebrated the accomplishments of six Distinguished Alumni and two Livingston Legacy faculty members – hours before a nor’easter snowstorm.

We honored the late Wells Hamilton Keddie, a Professor of Labor Studies and Employment Relations at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, as well as those shown here.

Our website has more information about the event and honorees, including a copy of the printed program and thanks to those who made the evening possible. Additional photos and videos will be posted soon.


LAA Seeks Board and Committee Members

Rutgers alumni interested in supporting the LAA’s goals of preserving the history and advancing the legacy of Livingston College are invited to join the LAA Executive Board and Council. The board meets several times per year in person and by phone. So the board is not limited to Livingston College graduates or those who live in Central New Jersey.

Alumni may also be interested in serving on LAA committees without joining the board. These committees work on multiple projects throughout the year, for example, planning the LAA’s awards and social events, choosing a student each year for the Riki Jacobs Livingston Pride Award, and collecting and analyzing Livingston historical documents.

The 2018-2019 board will be voted on at the LAA’s board meeting on Tuesday, May 22. Please email Jeff Armus (jmarmus55@gmail.com), the LAA’s Elections and Nominations Chair, by May 8 for more information.


April Events Include Alumni Weekend, Rutgers Day and Rutgers Loyal Sons and Daughters

In addition to the Theater Afternoon listed above, alumni may be interested in the following events in April:


Alumna of the Month: Marla Diamond

Marla Diamond, LC’92, is an award-winning journalist for WCBS Newsradio 880. Diamond joined WCBS as its New Jersey correspondent in 1997.

She currently covers New York City for the station.

Diamond will serve as emcee for the 2018 Rutgers Loyal Sons and Daughters event.

In 2009 the LAA honored Diamond as a Distinguished Alumna.

 


Unity Bank Partnership Supports Pride Award Fund

LAA's Riki Jacobs Livingston Pride Award has been given each year since 1990 to a Rutgers-New Brunswick student who most embodies the spirit of Livingston College's leadership and social action. The award winner receives a minimum $500 grant from the LAA.

 


Current and new customers of Unity Bank can help fund this award confidentially and at no cost to the customer through the UCare Charitable Giving Program. Find out how.

 


In Rutgers Spirit,
