Triton Tables


Jacobs School of Engineering alumnus Adrian Smith ('83) and his wife Kathy recently hosted a lively BBQ for more than a dozen engineering recent graduates and current students in their Emerald Hills, CA home. An event known as the "Triton Tables" that connects alumni and students over dinner, students invariably describe it as inspiring and motivating to meet with seasoned alumni.

"We are great talent looking to be nurtured by those before us," said Nilam Patel ('08), "I am glad that successful alumni are actively participating to guide the fresher faces coming out of UC San Diego." Host Adrian remarked on the "many stimulating conversations" that occurred during the evening, and that the Triton Tables program is helping alumni to reach out to students and recent grads to establish a tradition and network of support.
