The Silliman University Alumni Association of New York-New Jersey Chapter will be hosting a “Meet and Greet” potluck luncheon with Silliman University Alumni and External Affairs Director Ruben N. Bokingo at the home of Carlos and Evangeline Manjares at Dix Hills, New York on July 5, 2012. This will be an opportunity for Mr. Bokingo to share updates on the campus, especially to US-based alumni who did not make it to Tipon 2015 in San Antonio, Texas. A similar alumni gathering is scheduled in Boston with the Silliman Alumni of New England (SANE) chapter at the home of Priscilla Lasmarias-Kelso, chapter president, on July 7, 2015.
