80 alumni from the Class of 1992 returned to their alma mater for the official celebration of 30 years since graduation. This event was not only about remembering the ’good old days’, but an opportunity to showcase the power of community and volunteer roles within an active alumni cohort.
The event was organized in partnership with an amazing volunteer community leader, whose enthusiasm and passion for maintaining relationships with fellow alumni has meant that this cohort is able to meet regularly, have a forum for discussion and a particular interest in giving their time and talent back to the University at this stage in their careers and personal lives.
Representing a range of programs from finance to international relations, and a range of careers in both the private and public sectors each of our participants were glad to return to campus to reunite with each other, hear a few words from Dr Anthony Radev, President and Dr Serge Sych, Vice President, Stakeholder Engagement, encouraging them to get involved.
There are a number of ways in which alumni are key in enhancing the student experience here at Corvinus. Many offer career advice or share internships and job opportunities, while others may return to campus as a guest speaker at one of our events, serve on alumni steering committees, organize reunions, act as international chapter leaders or promote the University among prospective students. What is important is that we tailor each of these volunteer roles to fit the individual needs of our alumni, and we look forward to working with many from the Class of 1992 in the new year.
It was wonderful to see such a closely knit community return to their alma mater for an evening of celebration – thank you to everyone for joining us, we look forward to seeing you again soon.
