I had an excellent night last night. First, we held our bi-monthly board of directors meeting for our Asian youth development group, Asian American LEAD. The board is comprised of a group of talented and caring individuals. I’m honored to be part of this group — and I love the positive impact we’re making on the lives of the many students we help and support.
Then, I hustled over to my alma mater, American University, to guest lecture to David Eyl and Chris Hudgins’ Sports Marketing class.
The AU campus continues to grow. There are new AU buildings along both Nebraska Ave and Mass Ave. And, the class I spoke to is in the new addition to the Kogod School of Business. It was a great classroom with excellent technology capabilities built in.
The students there have it so good now … there’s even a Wagshal’s Deli in the Ward Circle Building (when we were there we used to have to drive down Mass Ave to the original Wagshal’s to get the classic pastrami sandwich). The Mary Graydon Center has a bunch of good eating places, including a fantastic cafetaria. And, of course, they have their on-campus gym as opposed to having to trek over to Ft Myer where the Eagles played when we were there.
It’s always good to be back on campus. Too bad they don’t stage the Spring Concert anymore — those were good, fun times!
