Bland, Steve

Freshman Dorm: Swig

Steve Bland '86 writes: "After experimentation working as an intern on Capitol Hill, I wandered into a career in advertising after graduating with my degree in History. Spent the next 17 years working at Chiat/Day in LA, SF and NY. In 2005, I changed things up and left the corporate world, spent the summer in Paris and went on an on-line dating binge. Fortunately, I got married in 2007 to my wife Connie. We had three day wedding event in Pittsburgh (and, a few Broncos showed up!). For the last year, I've been running my advertising business off a movie studio lot. I'm still married. I live in Pasadena."

Berghoff, Eric

Freshman Dorm: Swig

Eric Berghoff '86, MBA '89, writes: "My wife (Madeline Desmond '87), my three children (Kayla, Garrett, and Tessie), and I have resided in the Sacramento area for the past 20+ years. My oldest daughter, Kayla, graduates with a theater arts degree from Santa Clara this year. Seeing her grow up as a Bronco has been incredibly exciting and gratifying for me. For the last 10 years, I've enjoyed an excellent professional experience in finance at Intel in Folsom, Calif. For several years, I also moonlighted as a mobile disc jockey, emceeing several hundred events until my 'retirement' in 2005. In short, life since SCU has been very rewarding and enriching."
