On November 4-5, 2017 Nazarbayev University held the 2nd NU Alumni Reunion. This year Alumni Reunion was represented by a 2-day weekend program (Official part and Sport Festival). The event had a great success with 200 graduates attending the event. A new format of interactive Reunion was welcomed by all participating parties.
Nazarbayev University administration and faculty also attended the event and gave their motivational speeches. The event was continued by the Networking and Teambuilding activities which included specially invited Professional speakers from different areas like Gareth Stamp(founding President of the Rotary Club of Astana), Assel Kozhakova (Red Point Kazakhstan), Miras Ibraimov(CrossFit Astana, A2 Supermarkets chain, THE SHOREDITCH) and our researchers Damel Mektepbayeva (mentor of ABC QuickStart at NU, supervisor of several startups in biomedicine area), Dana Akilbekova (senior researcher at NLA).
The NU Alumni joining the event noted that it served as an ice-breaker among all three graduate cohorts which is one of the goals of the activities of the NU Alumni Association.
Most importantly, the Reunion provided Alumni with an opportunity to rejoin altogether, feel like being back home and see each other.
The next Alumni Reunion will take place in 2019 under the full supervision of the NU Alumni Association.
