As an alumni of the class of '73, boy do these pictures bring back long lost memories.

Features

Walk Across California

An epic journey whereby one foot is put in front of the other to discover, up close and personal, who and what and where is the Golden State.

Miller's Tale

To tell the story of Bob Miller ’67 is to tell the coming-of-age tale of Las Vegas itself. And it’s the chronicle of a man who served a decade as governor of Nevada. Quite a journey for the son of an illegal bookie from Chicago.

Blood. Sweat. Tears. Repeat.

Nina Acosta ’82 was a tough enough cop to pass the test for the LAPD’s SWAT team. Then she learned the hard way about gender discrimination. So how did she do on Survivor?

Mission Matters

When justice is kidnapped

The 2013 Alexander Law Prize honors Chen Guangcheng, a Chinese civil-rights activist and attorney who protested government abuses—including excessive enforcement of the one-child policy—then escaped house arrest to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing.

Double trouble

Growing up tennis with Kelly Lamble ’13 and John Lamble ’14. And Bronco teams that are a force to be reckoned with nationally.

Keep the door open

For teaching and advising and a ministry that’s blessed this place for 48 years—paying tribute to Charles Phipps, S.J.
