Alumni Abbreviations

Alumni are former students and graduates of a university or college. The singular of alumni is an alumnus. This Latin word literally means ‘graduate’. Universities and colleges often try to keep in touch with alumni.

After a student has graduated and deregistered from the university or college, one can quickly lose contact with both the educational institution and the former classmates. Partly for this reason , universities and universities of applied sciences organize various activities in which students can maintain contact with each other and with former teachers. In this way, people are not only aware of what everyone is doing, but they also maintain a broad network. Almost all universities organize meetings for alumni and thus maintain strong ties with everyone. Alumni of universities of applied sciences generally have less strong ties with the educational institution. Nevertheless , a large number of universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands try to keep in touch with alumni.

Universities and colleges of higher education often organize (network) drinks to keep in touch with alumni. In this way, old contacts can still be maintained in a fairly informal way. In addition, workshops or courses are sometimes given, for example to give tips about applying for jobs and other matters related to entering the labor market.

In addition to the drinks and other activities organized by universities and colleges, alumni often receive a discount on all kinds of facilities offered by these institutions. For example, alumni can take out a sports subscription at a lower rate than other private individuals.
