Daily Cal reunions on the East Coast

dc to dc 2

The Daily Californian Alumni Association is hosting free reunions for alumni in the DC and New York areas, and we’d love any former staffer or fan of the independent, student-run newspaper to join us for food, drink, entertainment and pangs of nostalgia.

There’s no cost and no obligation — we’re really just hoping to get East Coast folks who appreciate the paper together in the same room.

Participants will have the opportunity to connect with the current editor in chief, former editors in chief, board members and staff members. We’re holding these events in addition to our Oct. 2 event in Berkeley.

Anyone with questions should email Will Kane (’10) at [email protected] or the current editor in chief, Kimberly Veklerov, at [email protected]

New York reunion:
when: Thursday, Sept. 17 at 7 p.m.
where: Madison Ave. at 90th

DC reunion:
when: Friday, Sept. 18 at 6:30 p.m.
where: two blocks away from American University’s Tenley Campus

Food and drink will be provided.

This form is all you need to fill out if attending the New York or DC events. If attending the Berkeley event, please fill out the registration form here:


Big Game Weekend Reception

The big news for fall 2012 isn’t just the new home for Cal football: the scoop is the Daily Cal’s new building at 2483 Hearst Avenue. Donated by the Heising-Simons Foundation, the Center for Independent Journalism is across the street from the Journalism School.

On October 19 – the day before the Big Game – we’ll have a reception to show off the new newsroom, honor Alumna of the Year Maura Dolan ’76 and Friend of Daily Cal Sue Stott, and gather together with old and new friends. Dolan is a legal affairs writer for the Los Angeles Times. Stott and Perkins Coie, the law firm in which she is a partner, have provided the Daily Cal with indispensable pro bono legal advice for three years.

Please join us for a reception in the Journalism School courtyard (Northgate Hall, Euclid and Hearst avenues) and tours of the new Daily Cal building from 6-8pm, Friday, October 19.

Please register now to reserve tickets.

Hors d’oeuvres, wine and other beverages will be served.

$35 per person

Fundraising and Alumni Event in Pasadena!

Southern California Meet Up at Pasadena’s Gamble House
Sunday, April 15, 3:30-5pm 

The Gamble House in Pasadena

Alumni Carla Lazzareschi (’70), Ron Lin (’04), and Larry Wilson (‘77) are kindly hosting an event from 3:30-5 PM on Sunday, April 15, at the Gamble House in Pasadena.

Take advantage of the chance to mix and mingle with Southern California alumni, and see the beautiful Gamble House— a historic Arts and Crafts-style landmark from architects Greene & Greene. You might remember the home as Doc Brown’s house in the 1985 movie Back to the Future.

There will be complimentary wine and snacks, as well as tours of the House. Featured speakers are alumni David Lazarus and Jim Rainey, both Los Angeles Times writers. Student editors will also be attending to tell about what is happening at the Daily Cal now, including the upcoming move out of Eshleman Hall.

Tickets are $35 per person, which includes the cost of the house tour and the wine, and will help raise funds for the Daily Cal. Please register now to reserve tickets or leave a donation to help defray the costs for students joining us from Berkeley. Feel free to forward this invite to other alumni.

Welcome to our brand new Donations website!

It’s finally time that people know more about The Daily Californian in its existence as a nonprofit organization giving students the opportunity to gain experience in journalism, advertising and media.

That’s what is all about.

On this website, there is information not only on the different ways to support the Daily Cal, but also on how our organization is structured, and who leads us to being an award-winning newspaper.

Take a look at our history, and you might come to understand why donations to the newspaper are so important: The Daily Californian is — and has been — the voice of Berkeley, and is now the city’s only independent newspaper. Thank you for coming to, and thank you for your generosity.
