The Alumni Office plays a key role at the University of Waikato in facilitating a worldwide social network for Waikato graduates and recognising their achievements.
University of Waikato Alumni
The University delivers an annual programme of alumni events, publications and benefits to nurture an ongoing relationship with its former students.
Alumni news and events are updated regularly on the Waikato Alumni website. Online versions of the year in review magazine, Off Campus, are also available here. Alumni are encouraged to stay in touch and share their success with the University via email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Waikato Alumni Representatives are volunteers based in cities around the world and are helpful contacts for providing social or business networking opportunities.
In 2007, the Distinguished Alumni Awards were launched to celebrate Waikato graduates who have made outstanding contributions in their careers or communities. Information on nominating a graduate can be found on the Alumni website.
University of Waikato branded merchandise is available for purchase on campus at Bennetts Bookstore or online.
The Alumni Office also supports a number of alumni groups. The Alumni Association is a membership organisation founded in 1989. Life Membership is available for $150 and benefits include access to library databases and concession rates at the UniRec Centre and University Library.
Waikato Graduate Women is the regional branch of the New Zealand Federation of Graduate Women. Waikato Graduate Women have a monthly programme of events and can be contacted through the New Zealand Federation of Graduate Women website.
Every year on the last Saturday in June, the University of Waikato Varstonians – former University sport players – gather to celebrate their Waikato connection and have a great day out. Visit their website for more information.
