Cape Town Alumni Dinner
The Alumni Relations Office co-ordinated an alumni get-together in Cape Town on Saturday, 11 May.
Guests were welcomed by Ms Normah Zondo from UKZN’s Corporate Relations Division. They enjoyed an excellent three-course dinner and informative talks by Mr Fanle Sibisi, UKZN Convocation President and Professor Nana Poku, Acting Vice-Chancellor and Principal, at the Twelve Apostles Hotel in Camps Bay.
Sibisi highlighted recent developments at the University and encouraged attendees to offer their support in any way possible, while Poku provided details on UKZN’s future plans. Of considerable interest to attendees was Poku’s mention of plans for the implementation of the digital classroom where students will be able to study at UKZN via e-learning regardless of space and time.
The event provided an enjoyable opportunity for alumni, donors and friends of UKZN to renew old acquaintances, meet fellow alumni and be updated on developments at their alma mater. They went home with information packs containing a selection of University publications and a corporate gift. Similar events will take place in many parts of South Africa and in neighbouring countries during the year. Graduates who wish to receive invitations to these events and UKZN-related information from Alumni Relations are encouraged to update their details via the UKZN alumni website at: http://alumniaffairs.ukzn.ac.za/updateservices.
