The alumni dinner, on March 22nd 2018, at the China World Hotel in Beijing, was a wonderful occasion for the University to develop relationships with students, supporters and alumni from all over the world. Alumni from all disciplines came together to exchange stories of life since graduation and catch up with old friends and staff from the University.
“It’s always a little humbling to meet international alumni because they are just so passionate and proud of the university. In Beijing I met not one but two couples where both had studied with us then met and and fell in love in Treforest. There was also a slightly older alumnus who had come to a previous alumni reunion meal in the same Beijing hotel restaurant and at the very same table in 2009! What was also great as well as the human stories was the fact that all our alumni present agreed that their experience with us had helped to positively shape their subsequent employment and career success.”
As we look to continue to build relationships with our Alumni and to encourage our alumni to come together and celebrate their successes with us, these types of events will hopefully become more and more frequent, particularly with our annual Alumni Big Weekend quickly becoming a global event.
Over the Alumni Big Weekend: Worldwide this June, you too could be reuniting with your classmates and celebrating your own successes since graduation!
