That was the summer festival!
Even though there is a lot going on at WU Alumni right now - traditions such as the Alumni Lounge on the roof garden of the Mensa will of course continue to be cultivated! This is what happened on 13 June 2019 at the highlight of the Alumni Year on the occasion of the big WU Summer Festival.
Alumnus Robert Kaltenbrunner and his company Hikings Days "playfully mixed up" WU graduates of many different graduation classes, from near and far, and encouraged them to exchange their alumni expectations. Rector Edeltraud Hanappi-Egger took up some of these ideas in her speech. Together with Markus Posch, Head of Erste Group Human Resources, she welcomed the guests. The fresh spirit of "WU Alumni NEW" was already noticeable in the program: for the first time the Alumni Recognition Awards were presented in the categories knowledge transfer, donations, network. Stimulating conversations, surprising reunions, fine cuisine with wine tasting, the atmospheric summer evening and DJ Funky Soul made the atmosphere perfect.
We from the WU Alumni Team enjoyed the celebration very much and thank all guests - and of course all partners and sponsors - for the extraordinary evening! And we are looking forward to the WU Alumni Lounge 2020.
