On October 27, 2012, over 60 IEOR alumni, faculty, and friends gathered at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley for the Fall 2012 IEOR Alumni Banquet. It was a beautiful, clear evening in Berkeley and guests caught up over dinner and drinks while enjoying stunning views of the sunset over Golden Gate Bridge. Guests got a first look at sketches of what Etcheverry will look like once the renovation project is completed, and Anthony Levandowski gave an entertaining and thought-provoking talk about his experiences with Google's self-driving cars (among other things) that prompted some great discussion afterwards. It was great to see people who we had not seen in a long time. We are looking forward to the next event!"
