On October 19th, the yearly Meet the Masters event took place. Once per year, the AUC common room is transformed into a busy, student filled fair, with stands representing a plurality of Dutch higher educational institutes. This event is organised by AUC, the AUCAA, and the AUC Student Council collaboratively. Apart from the universities fair, the defining aspect of this is event is that we invite AUC alumni from all over the world to give their advice about masters to current students. Thirteen alumni particiapted in this part of the event, representing prestigious instituions such as Imperial College London, New York University, Kings College London, the University of Oxford, and more!
With so many alumni already gathered right at AUC, we decided to organise our first alumni borrel of the year, both as a way to say thank you to all those who participated, and to give alumni a chance to catch up with one another. We placed out an open invite to alumni, and in the end we had a small, but enthusiastic group of alumni gathered. It was a nice evening spent catching up, reminiscing, talking to current students and staff, all enjoyed with a couple of drinks (courtesy of AUC!) With the year already well underway, we plan to organise more, and more regular, alumni drinks! Have any suggestions about where / how / when we should organise the next alumni drinks? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your thoughts! Stay tuned for more updates, and we hope to see you there next time!
