Each year, hundreds of CSU Alumni reconnect with the University and their fellow graduates at alumni events. CSU’s Alumni Experience Events were introduced to provide unique opportunities for shared adventures. When attending an Alumni Experience, you’ll not only take part in a fun event, you’ll meet new people, reignite old friendships and develop connections within the strong, vibrant CSU alumni community. Alumni Relations Officer Stacey Fish said that Alumni Experience Events are not just about building the CSU Alumni community. “Our events also raise money for the CSU Foundation Trust, with a donation from every event ticket sold raising money for Foundation scholarships. “In this way, our graduates are directly supporting future generations of CSU students to reach their full potential. “CSU aims to build a better tomorrow and we’re absolutely delighted to continue in this mission with our graduates’ help. We thank all those who took part in our events this year, and look forward to even more events in 2017.” Here’s a recap of some of the great CSU Alumni Experience Events last year:
