After receiving her Bachelor degree, Connolly worked for IBM for a year and came back to school for a teaching Credential. She taught high schools for several years and decided to stay home to raise four children. In 1985, Margaret came back to the teaching world and taught basic Math courses in the College of Business at San Francisco State University for 5 years.

Graduated at the age of 69, Calvin D. Randolph (BA ’84, Fine Arts; Geology) was the oldest graduate in the class of 1984. After receiving the first Bachelor degree, he wanted to explore a different field. Randolph continued to go to school for his second Bachelor in Geology. He enjoyed taking Geology and other Science classes very much. However, he ran into a stumbling block when he realized that Physics is one of the required classes and Trigonometry was the prerequisite for Physics. At the age of 71 Trigonometry was not an easy subject for him so he had to drop out of school. Since then, his retirement is less hectic.

Dr. Edward Seen Wong (BS ’94, Chemistry & Biochemistry) went on to earn his Pharmacy Doctorate degree from University of California School of Pharmacy. He graduated on May 1998 and started his Pharmacy Residency at Long Beach Memorial Hospital.
