Celebrating Alumni Series

Our STS alumni have so much talent to share. 

The STS Annual Events Committee introduced an ongoing series to give STS alumni a VIP pass to experience each other’s businesses and skills. These events are great ways to network and socialize while learning something new. 

STS alumni got cooking with alumna Marie Fudge ’87 at the first ever Celebrating Alumni Series event on January 29, 2015 at Cuisine et Chateau. Our alumni’s kitchen chops were put to good use as alumni joined friends to prepare a gourmet meal, including homemade gnocchi and crepes; all while enjoying a wine pairing and great company.

“The interactive culinary event at Cuisine et Chateau was a fantastic alumni function. The venue was ideal for re-engaging with old friends while allowing us to learn a few culinary tricks in the kitchen. Marnie and Thierry were perfect hosts and I look forward to similar events in the future,” said Jill Cross '85.

At the second event of our Celebrating Alumni Series, alumni were guided through the art of brewing and tasting coffee by fellow alumnus Jeremy Ho '05 on Thursday, February 26, 2015 at his newly launched location - Monogram Coffee.  

Alumnus Ryan Burgess '07 said "I had a great time at Monogram; Jeremy knows how to communicate his deep knowledge and passion for coffee in a fun and relatable way. I can't wait to go back for a custom-brewed coffee!"

The next event saw alumni indulge in one of history’s earliest finer fares – oysters – as Eric Giesbrecht ’92 demystified the art of shucking and introduced the notion that we are not just what we eat, but HOW we eat as well.  Then, alumni stepped up, knife in hand and revealed their inner-oyster-opener at the third Celebrating Alumni Series event.
