Denver, Colorado

Thanks to her eavesdropping skills, Kirsten Akens ’96 randomly met three other CC alumnae while shopping at the Sweet William Market in Denver where Shana Colbin Dunn ’92 was manning a booth for her newest venture, True, a holistic boutique. Akens, left, encountered Katie Schreck Green ’90, Dunn, and Karma Stryker Ansbacher ’92 and struck up a conversation after overhearing them discussing their CC class years.



Ryan Hughes ’07 and I met on the side of a mountain in Iceland (we were both hiking the L and hiding from the extreme wind) when he looked over and noticed the “CC alum” sticker on the side of my water bottle. He and his wife Anna became my new friends over the next few days as Ryan and I talked all about CC and bonded over our mutual love for our alma mater! CC peeps are the best!
