Shake It Up with Alumni Events
The past six weeks have seen a plethora of Worcester State alumni
events including the MetroWest Regional Networking opportunity, the WSU
Alumni Red Sox Night, the Worcester Regional Blue Man Group event, and
the WSU Alumni Evening at the Taste of Shrewsbury Street. Each
of these events provided a unique opportunity for alumni to reconnect,
meet fellow alumni, and leverage the benefits of being a member of the
Worcester State alumni family.
MetroWest Regional Alumni Networking
The inaugural alumni networking event drew 21 alumni to Grant Thornton LLP on May 23, 2012 for the opportunity to share thoughts, ideas, contacts, and to expand professional networks.

Alan, a graduate of the Worcester State business administration program with a concentration in accounting, is Grant Thornton's Partner in Charge of the Tax Operations in the New England Cluster.
WSU Alumni Red Sox Night
Who would pass up the opportunity to go to a Sox game for just
$25? Certainly not the more than 40 alumni and guests
who gathered in the bleachers at Fenway Park on June 7, 2012 to cheer on
the Red Sox as they trampled the Orioles!
While snacking on Fenway Franks and kettle corn, Worcester
State alumni settled in for a great game as beach balls bounded
overhead. Little did we know that we were in for a treat
as we watched Clay Buchholz pitch his third-career shutout. Notably,
all of his shutouts have come against the O’s. The final
score was 7-0. For a full review of the game, click
