It’s Flashback Friday! 🌹

A year ago, CMCers were gearing up to celebrate the first-ever Rose Parade® float from the College. The 55-foot float was lovingly decorated by volunteers from the CMC community, and many CMCers also proudly took part in the Adopt-A-Rose program, investing in student scholarships. Each gift—made in honor or in memory of a favorite CMCer—was represented by a rose on the award-winning float as it made its five-mile journey down Colorado Boulevard with several CMC students on board.

As the year comes to a close, and in honor of CMC’s (almost) one-year Rose Parade® anniversary, we hope you will consider making a gift to support scholarships that prepare students for thoughtful and productive lives and responsible leadership in business, government, and the professions.

Thank you for your support!

Brian Bullard ’91, who recently retired from the Capital Group, thought he was just sharing a catch-up lunch with Professor Marc Massoud P’89. However, Massoud asked Bullard if he would be interested in teaching at CMC so students could hear about his business experience.

Bullard couldn’t say no to his former professor.

Now, more than 30 years after graduating from CMC, Bullard has found himself back in the classroom this fall teaching “Financial Statement Analysis” as a visiting lecturer with the Robert Day School of Economics and Finance.

“I really view this as an opportunity to give back to the student body," Bullard said. "There were professors I had who had a huge impact on my life. I hope I can have an impact on some of the current students."

Did you know CMC’s international students represent 52 countries? For International Student Day—and to round out International Education Week—we asked several CMCers to share their study abroad experience with us. Look for multiple profiles throughout the day!

▪ What has been the biggest reward or motivation for studying abroad?

To experience different sides of the world, being able to make friends with people from different backgrounds, and learn from the cultural disparities. I expected the challenges to be cultural barriers due to different growing environments, but it turned out that such differences are what make you unique and attract people to make friendships.

▪ What opportunities have you taken advantage of while at CMC?

I really enjoy the resources offered by the Gould Center and EnviroLab. As a Gould Fellow, we can have direct conversations with Ath speakers through workshops. I also attended the research trip offered by EnviroLab to Maine this spring, which enabled me to develop my research skills, interview and teamwork skills, and leadership skills.

▪ How do you build community at CMC?

On campus, I have found friendships with the Asian student community through the APAM group. I also helped build the Chinese student community by hosting events with CSSA, such as the Spring Festival Shows in McKenna Auditorium.


▪ What advice would you give to international students who are thinking about coming to CMC?

CMC has an inclusive student body and I recommend you join I-Connect, APAM, and other international student communities. Being part of campus clubs also helps you build tight bonds with people who share the same interests or career aspirations. Go out and be involved!

Roughly 400 alumni who have called the Rose Institute of State and Local Government home are making a difference in the world, many having built their careers in politics, public policy, or adjacent arenas. In fact, the Rose board roster reads like a Who’s Who of California leadership, offering depth and practical experience to CMC's mission-driven academic rigor. Alumni, like Nicholas Heidorn ’06 (pictured with Rose Institute director Ken Miller), also give back by returning to campus and interacting with students and faculty, whether through an Athenaeum talk, a presentation, or as a project consultant. With deep experience in California election administration, Heidorn has helped students with signature initiatives like the Rose's Video Voter Guide. We look forward to seeing more alumni return for the Rose Institute's 50th Anniversary campus gala at the Ath on October 27!

In a dignified, inspiring memorial ceremony infused with warmth, the CMC community came together to reflect upon the leadership legacy of retired U.S. Ambassador C. Steven McGann ’73, who was a member of the Claremont McKenna College Board of Trustees.

A number of community members shared remarks, including Sue Matteson King ’85 P’18, McGann’s wife, Bertra McGann, and Joseph Zhong ’25 – all pictured.

Zhong, whom McGann mentored through his dedication to the CMC Washington Program, shared that "Ambassador McGann truly embodied responsible leadership, always using his stature, his humor, his wisdom, and his charm to create a better, more equitable world.”
