GradFest participants head off to the ballpark
More than 400 graduates of Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges and their guests celebrated Tuesday night at GradFest, an event put on by the Foundation for Grossmont & Cuyamaca Colleges. The grads met at Rare Form, Fairweather & Stone Brewery, located by Petco Park, then headed over to the ballpark to watch the San Diego Padres play the Seattle Mariners.

Grads posed with cut-out frames with their college name and the hashtag #grossmontgrad or #cuyamacagrad. They held whiteboards showing their plans, now that they are community college graduates!

Chancellor Cindy Miles and Foundation CEO John Valencia welcomed the grads to the Alumni Association, and urged them to maintain their ties to the colleges.

Although the Padres lost 5-0, it was a fun event and a great way to celebrate the grads' success!
