One of the things I really appreciated about the pre-game mixer was the fact that there were a bunch of students there, along with a bunch of recent alumni (think: Rugged, Snow, etc.) and a bunch of not-so-recent alumni (like myself) and a good group of major donors - all mixing and rubbing elbows with each other. I think this is a great way for current students to learn the benefits of remaining in contact with the University after their days as students are over. I probably sound like a broken record, but I can't say enough how impressed I was. This is how it's done.
