UKZN’s series of alumni lunch “get-togethers”, which are proving incredibly successful and popular, will continue in the eThekwini area and spread to the KwaZulu-Natal coastal districts, the Midlands as well as to other regions in South Africa in the coming months.

The hosting of about 12 alumni at informal lunches in pleasant venues began in May this year with eight events so far.

The format consists of a lunch, the opportunity to network with both fellow alumni/friends and members of the UKZN Alumni Relations team, and receive updates on the latest developments at the University.

Up to now the gatherings have been held in the central Durban area as well as in Gillitts/Hillcrest, Umhlanga and Durban North – all within easy commuting distance from workplaces and homes.

The feedback from participants has been hugely encouraging and provides support for the plan to co-ordinate more smaller events with a limited number of guests.

UKZN’s Alumni Relations Office encourages all graduates wishing to participate in the gatherings to email: alumni@ukzn.ac.za.
