The Spring 2018 issue of Pepperdine Magazine explores the concept of home, and the different ways we are affected by changes in our living conditions. Alumni Elvina Beck (’08), Michael Lucarelli (MBA ’16), Paul Sirisuphang (MBA ’16), and Derek Day (MPP ’16) have contributed to developing new ways for individuals and families to find housing; Seaver College professor Dan E. Caldwell has teamed up with student veterans like Jessica Egan (’15) and Luis Murillo to help create a welcoming environment that will ease the transition from military life to civilian life; and Michael “Tank” Gonzales (JD ’08) and David Andrade (MPP ’11) traveled to Puerto Rico to feed those whose homes have been destroyed by Hurricane Maria.
