Ever wonder about those strange designations we use throughout Northwestern to identify alumni of the various schools of the University? See the complete list.

Emile Cambry (KSM08), left, and Todd Belcore (L10), friends since the seventh grade, are partners in a grand artistic endeavor — the Chicago International Social Change Film Festival. Cambry, an award-winning filmmaker and business professor at North Park University, and Belcore, an award-winning advocate on behalf of low-income people at the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law in Chicago, co-founded the CISCFF in 2012. Last year’s festival, with films on topics from farm workers’ rights to microfinance and climate change, included 60 documentaries from more than 20 countries, as well as a fashion show and a contest for films created in 48 hours. Cambry and Belcore will host the volunteer-run festival again in September. They hope to create an event that gives viewers opportunities to take a stand on issues that affect people around the globe.
