AMU alumni meet 2015

Aligarh: The Aligarh Muslim University organised the Alumni Meet-2015 during 18-19 October. It was attended by more than 600 alumni from various countries and and from across India.  

Addressing the Meet at the University’s Kennedy Hall Auditorium, the Chief Guest, Mr Jawed Usmani, former Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary and current Chief Information Commissioner of Uttar Pradesh, said that truly, we as alumni were nourished by our alma mater and we all owe a debt of gratitude to it. “The positive experiences we have had and the fond memories of years spent with friends create a strong sense of belonging, connecting us to our Alma Mater long after we have left it. This is what motivates the alumni, whom we endearingly term ‘old boys’ and ‘old girls’, to return year after year.”

He said that the alumni can contribute by being inspiring role models and by finding time to visit the University, to connect and interact with students and inspire them to work towards achieving their goals. Mr Usmani said that alumni can fund path breaking research programmes and new innovative courses, focused on employability.

Another speaker was famous actor and an AMU alumnus, Naseer Uddin Shah who promised to regularly visit AMU and contribute in training students interested in theatre activities.

The Aligarh Muslim University Vice Chancellor, Zameer Uddin Shah said that it is hoped that students will learn from the success stories of alumni gathered in AMU.
