We have a new exciting pilot project running! We want to offer UCU students the chance to discover the cities and universities where they might want to pursue their studies, together with our alumni. The idea is that you, as an alumnus/alumna, can show the student around the city and the university, let him/her crash on your couch, give helpful advice, etc. Read more about the project here, and if you would like to participate (yesyesyes!) please contact Roeland at firstname.lastname@example.org!
As June was starting to peek around the corner, another UCAA drink was organized on a beautiful sunny day in The Hague, by regional representative Gergana Yancheva. It happened that the McGill The Netherlands alumni drink was occurring at the very same time and place. Gergana: “We ended up sharing a drink and discussing intercontinental alumni stuff.. 🙂 It was fun!”
For photos of the evening, please see the gallery below. Want to join the next time? Join the UCAA group(s) on Facebook, register with the UCAA to receive the Newsletter and check back here regularly to stay informed on the latest events!
We wanted to reinstate the football tournament that was organized every year by SportsCo, back in the day. A sportive reason for alumni to come back to campus and enjoy some healthy competition. So on Saturday the 23rd of June the freshly paved pitch of UC campus was stepped upon by ‘old’ feet. Eight teams signed up and competed for the big (it was pretty big!) prize. At the end of the day, the BBQ was started and lots of burgers were turned. And the winner of the big final was…. the Cookie Crumblers! Congrats once again. And a big thank you to the alumni who organized this big event: Jeroen, Guillaume, Laurens, and Roeland!
