Mpumalanga Alumnus Lunch
A group of 50 alumni from across Mpumalanga came together on 24 August for lunch and an information sharing presentation at Magnolia Restaurant in White River. The group thoroughly enjoyed meeting one another, swopping stories of their University experiences and exchanging contact details. UKZN appreciates their commitment as many had to travel for a number of hours to attend the event.
The graduates were welcomed by Ms Normah Zondo, Director of University Relations who also introduced the guest speaker, President of Convocation, Mr Fanle Sibisi. He provided a comprehensive overview on current developments at the University as well as information on student numbers, current ranking and research. Numerous questions followed, many regarding registration and funding for postgraduate studies at the University.
Amid much networking and reminiscing, a lucky-draw was held and information packages and UKZN-branded memorabilia were distributed.
