The collection of email addresses and contact numbers were pass on from one colleague to another. An overwhelming response, help and support were carried out and received. Communication through email and calls were initiated and maintained until we reach confirmation of attendance in the event.
With the full support and cooperation Of His Excellency Prof. Abdullah Al Rubaish, the President of the Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University, The first alumni day was carried on and has annually been one of the most awaited gathering in the college.
This day brings cheers and smiles to all present while reminiscing college day memories. It opens communication and rekindle friendship among graduates themselves. It also gives inspiration to the young graduates having heard the achievements of the alumni before them.
Every year’s gathering of the alumni is different than the previous ones. It is made sure that it is extra special for every graduate attending the event. Every year honors different batches of graduates. It is one way of letting our graduates feel that they will always be welcome in the university that has always been proud of their achievements.
The greatest pride that a university could ever have is the achievements and inspiring milestones that its graduate has in its career endeavors as well as their accomplishments in person.
