Throwback Saturday: alumni day
The University is taking the opportunity to celebrate its alumni in the context of its 405th anniversary.
‘Throwback Saturday’ will kick off with a lunch at the Grote Markt, hosting over 1,000 alumni. During the lunch, there will be a formal opening of the event in which the alumnus of the year will be announced by the Board of the University.
After the opening, the various alumni associations of the University will organize activities all over the city, in which all alumni are welcome to join. Transport by bus and bike will be provided for at all locations. Those who choose not to participate in these activities can instead take part in the guided walking tours and historical bus tours. All tours and transport depart from the Grote Markt.
You are welcome to come for a coffee in the Spiegelzaal of the Academy Building at any time. You will have the chance to play an interesting online game to see where your heart lies: what research would you support? At 3.30 p.m., the Young Alumni Network is organizing a so-called ‘Human Bingo’ and a lecture about happiness in the Aula of the Academy Building.
At the end of the afternoon, all alumni are invited to drop by for a drink at the CLUB Broerplein, which will be bustling with music and food trucks.
