Important Announcement from the OC Cal Alumni Club

Dear Alumni,

Due to the recent developments related to the coronavirus and COVID-19, the OC Cal Alumni Club will be postponing all scheduled in-person events through the summer.

Our chapter cares about the wellbeing of our community, so out of an abundance of caution, we will be following the guidance of the university and state leadership in an effort to minimize everyone's exposure, especially those who are most vulnerable.

We plan to reschedule our events for later in the year so please keep up with us on social media for updates. If you have purchased any tickets, you will receive a full refund. We hope you stay connected with us during this time ... we'll all get through this together.

Thank you, and Go Bears!
