alum-news-buttonDavid-Clary-photoDavid Clary wrote the book “Gangsters to Governors: The New Bosses of Gambling in America,” which was published by Rutgers University Press in October 2017. The book, his first, explores how and why states seized control of gambling from organized crime. In the book, Clary weaves together a colorful narrative that is full of roguish criminals like Bugsy Siegel and Benny Binion and modern-day gambling magnates like Sheldon Adelson. He is a news editor at The San Diego Union-Tribune. For more information about Clary’s book, visit its webpage at Rutgers University Press.

Attention New York Alums: Maxwell’s NYC Networking Trip is March 14-16, 2018

The Graduate Students are Coming! – Coffee and Couches Needed

The 9th annual New York City networking trip is fast approaching on March 14, 15, & 16 and we need your help!

pexels-photo.jpgMaxwell students are incredibly excited about the trip, as well as the opportunity to engage with the amazing alumni who make up the Maxwell family. As always, this trip wouldn’t be possible without support from alums like you. If you can help us by sharing your home or hosting a coffee chat please follow the instructions below to register your support.

Housing Help

While some students in our class have NYC area connections, many students still need housing. Hotels and AirBnB’s can be costly additions to the trip, which may deter some students from going. Our graduate students are considerate, tidy guests who will make every effort to work around your schedule. Whether you have an extra room, open couch, or floor space for a sleeping bag or blow-up mattress, our students would greatly appreciate your assistance in keeping this trip affordable.

Host a Coffee Chat

Do you have time to host a small coffee chat with students on Thursday, March 15 or Friday, March 16? The chats will give you an opportunity to meet students and tell them about your own professional development in an informal setting. Students will greatly benefit from making meaningful connections, and getting to ask you questions without pressure. After receiving your contact information, we will share it with interested students who will get in touch with you directly to schedule a meeting.
