Alumni Lunch at Richards Bay
UKZN alumni on the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast had the opportunity to re-connect with their alma mater and fellow alumni at a lunch at the Protea Hotel Waterfront in Richards Bay recently.
The function was organised by the Alumni Relations Office at the Corporate Relations Division as a reunion, networking and information sharing event for alumni and friends of the University.
Promoting the University’s ongoing interventions, developments and achievements, Executive Director of Corporate Relations, Mr Lesiba Seshoka, updated guests on the latest developments taking place at UKZN, including the appointment of the new Vice-Chancellor.
Seshoka also spoke about the many activities and projects undertaken to promote relationships and highlighted numerous achievements, such as the current international rankings the University enjoys.
Mr Monde Mjebeza of the UKZN Foundation spoke on the various options available for alumni to give back to the University and encouraged all graduates to consider contributing financially.
Convocation Executive member, Mr Andre Young, gave an address in which he highlighted the achievements of the University and the role all alumni can play in promoting and supporting the Institution as well as contributing to history. Convocation Executive member – Mr Sifiso Mncube – was the very engaging and capable Programme Director.
In addition, staff from the College of Law and Management Studies presented a comprehensive overview of the new programmes available at the Graduate School of Business and Leadership. A lot of interest was shown in the information literature available on the courses as well as that on offer from Extended Learning.
The 56 alumni at the function enjoyed the three-course buffet lunch. The event will continue to be held annually.
