Hey guys,
Can you fill this "Social Life in College" survey for my entrepreneur friend, takes less than a minute !!! Please 🙂
As one of the early staff and students at Sherwood Oaks Experimental College plus later a guest speaker, I would like to give my long time appreciation to the school for its influence on my career.
May 25th, 1977 ...43 years ago today a picture with my Professor, Lucille Ball from Sherwood Oaks Experimental College.
I wanted to share this photo of Gary Shusett and his star teacher, Lucille Ball from 1977
Gary Shusett know that you would have hugged your close buddy and SWO speaker Guillermo del Toro! He is truly amazing just like YOU!
Hope you enjoyed the show. Let us take behind the curtain and see real Hollywood this April! www.sherwoodoaksfilmschool.com

I feel saddened for all of the previous Sherwood Oaks speakers including Anne Heche, Tony Dow, and Clu Galagher that have recently passed. They were an inspiration to the students and will be missed. RIP.

Thank YOU Ivan Reitman for speaking to the Sherwood Oaks students many times. You were truly amazing. RIP.

R.I.P Ivan Reitman
We are saddened to hear the passing of Ivan Reitman. Influential filmmaker and producer, behind beloved comedies from “Animal House” to “Ghostbusters,” among other iconic films has died. He was 75.

Reitman died peacefully in his sleep Saturday night at his home in Montecito, Calif.

“Our family is grieving the unexpected loss of a husband, father, and grandfather who taught us to always seek the magic in life,” children Jason Reitman, Catherine Reitman and Caroline Reitman said in a joint statement. “We take comfort that his work as a filmmaker brought laughter and happiness to countless others around the world. While we mourn privately, we hope those who knew him through his films will remember him always.”
