Alumni Circle

At the Residence of the consul general, 9 November 2016

About 150 alumni live in the larger Hong Kong area. The circle got its start with the former consul general and UG alumnus Wilfred Mohr in 2012. He gave gave shape to the circle and often had alumni visit him. After his return to the Netherlands, five enthusiastic alumni picked up the baton. They organize all kinds of meetings, such as a pub quiz or Sinterklaas evening.

During these events, attention is paid to the PhD research by Ying-Chi Chan. She examines, under the supervision of Spinoza winner prof.dr. Theunis Piersma, migratory birds such as the Godwit in Northeast Asia.
