Reunion Alumni Spotlight

Cesie Alvarez

B.A. Legal Studies, B.A. Psychology, Delta Delta Delta


What have you been up to since graduating from UC Berkeley?

Since graduation, I attended Cornell Law School. I now live in New York where I am a litigation associate in the IP/copyright group of Winston & Strawn. I regularly attend boxing and rowing classes to manage work stress.

How did your experience at Cal or your sorority have an impact on you?

I met some of my best friends through my sorority and we speak daily. Also, the officer positions I held helped me learn skills — like organization and confidence in my work product — that I still use to this day.

What is one of your favorite memories from your time in your sorority?

I loved getting ready for events with my sorority sisters. Gathering into one room to do our makeup together and gossip was always fun. We also spent a lot of time in the TV room being couch potatoes —  something I cherish and miss.

Do you have any advice for current collegiate members of sororities at Cal?

Enjoy every minute of it! Don’t take your moments together for granted. Try not to get sucked into petty nonsense like tiers. These years should be about establishing and growing friendships.
