March is always an exciting month on our calendar as we welcome new and returning students. Fittingly then, you’ll see that this e-news is filled with stories about alumni returning to the Waikato and about a new initiative making tertiary study more accessible for students from the wider region.
We hope some of our buzz rubs off on you and that you enjoy our orientation photos, which may bring back some memories. Remember, wherever in the world you are, we’d love to hear from you!
Congratulations to Sara Taylor who is the recipient of our 2017 Alumni Scholarship. Sara studied a Bachelor of Management Studies majoring in Human Resource Management and Management Information Systems. We look forward to catching up with Sara to hear how she’s getting on with her PGDip in Primary Teaching later in the year.
The Distinguished Alumni Awards are being held at the end of this month. Keep an eye out for a special issue of our e-news in April celebrating our distinguished alumni and their achievements.
We hope you enjoy this issue. If you missed out on sharing your feedback with us in December, there’s still time to complete our alumni survey.
This month we're giving away a University of Waikato puffer jacket. Make sure you read our full email to learn how you could win it.
Best wishes, Leonie and the alumni team.
