The triple-digit heat may have kept some away, but 150 alumni still made it out to the Cincinnati chapter’s first alumni steak fry, which took place on campus in July.
The weather forced the event, originally scheduled to take place on the residential mall, into the student dining hall. But it didn’t wilt any of the fun.
While alumni enjoyed their steak or chicken dinners, they listened to head basketball coaches Sean Miller and Kevin McGuff talk about their respective upcoming seasons and field questions about their recent recruiting efforts. Basketball standout and recent graduate Brian Thornton also made an appearance in which he confided to the crowd that his Xavier education was his insurance policy if basketball didn’t work out.
