Flashback Friday: Grand Reunion...and Panetta in the house

Santa Clara grads from across the years are gathering on campus this weekend, including a number of folks from the Class of ’60.

One big event on Friday night: the launch of the President's Speaker Series with Central Intelligence Agency Director Leon Panetta ’60, J.D. ’63.

(That's his law school graduation pic on the left.)

 Topic of the day: maintaining national security amid the threat of nuclear weapons, cyber-attacks, etc., while still abiding by the Constitution and upholding American values.

Look for a lively Q&A.

In his undergrad stint at Santa Clara, Panetta studied political science and helped found the Italian club.

Can you find him in the group shot?

 Thank you, SCU Archives and The Redwood for the archival snaps.
