On November 16, two dozen College alumni gathered at the Elephant & Castle pub in Washington, D.C., to discuss the 2016 election cycle. Led by Chief Washington Correspondent for Yahoo! News Olivier Knox ’92, the Q&A covered the pros and cons of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s campaigns, the election results and the new administration’s transition process. The event was part of a recent series of alumni-led regional events, which has included a Santa Monica, Calif., discussion on the entertainment industry led by Erik Feig ’92, co-president of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, and Ben Cosgrove ’90, president of 2929 Productions; and a San Francisco tech and social media discussion led by Sean Ryan ’90, VP of platform partnerships at Facebook
