A beautiful location, a great guest lecturer and delicious food are the best predictors for a great alumni meeting in Twente.
On Monday, 8 October, more than 50 UG alumni joined the alumni meeting to meet fellow UG alumni, share knowledge and enjoy a fabulous time together. At the entrance alumni were welcomed with an amuse-bouche. Walking into the room, they all had enough time to meet and greet old friends and make new ones. Of course, the director Ubbo Emmius Fund, Gerbrand Visser, officially welcomed everybody and shared some interesting developments of the University of Groningen.
The Wilmersberg, is well-known for its unique and divine cuisine. This time they also surprised our alumni with a delicious mouthwatering beef from their own property and some good old Dutch ‘patat’. Sitting together everybody had a lot to share.
Our guest lecturer was prof. Dr. Kees Aarts, Dean of the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences. He spoke about the the influence of new media on political behavior during the elections of Trump, Obama and current Dutch politics. The presentation was a good starting point for a great discussion, which was still continued at times during the evening.
To summarize, a wonderful evening, with a lot of laughter, great discussions and good company.
