Uppsala University Global Alumni Day 2017
We are calling on Uppsala University alumni from all around the world to join us on Tuesday, 7 November, 2017 to make Uppsala University history.
For the very first time, Uppsala University alumni across the globe will arrange alumni get-togethers in their hometowns on the same day and they would like you to join them. There are more than 60 events in over 40 countries to choose from and they are all organised by alumni volunteers.
This alumni-led initiative will seek to recognise and celebrate the growing Uppsala University alumni network. Come and meet fellow alumni and friends of Uppsala University! Reminisce and make new friends and connections in your own hometown.
The deadline is 29 October, but if you register by 10 October you will receive a little gift at the event.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is eligible to participate in the Global Alumni Day?
All Uppsala University alumni are welcome to organise and attend this event. This means everyone who has studied (no matter how much or little) or worked, or is working at Uppsala University. Also our honorary doctors, guest researchers, board members and others close to the University are regarded as alumni.
You can also participate if you are thinking about studying at Uppsala University in the future, if you are partner in a research project or other type of international collaboration project or just a friend of the university in general.
My city is not in the list, what can I do?
It was in these cities that someone raised their hand and volunteered to arrange a get-together when we sent out the call in June and July.
