Young Alumni Pack

The purpose of the Young Alumni Pack (YAP) is to strengthen ties with recent graduates and encourage their continued involvement with the university. Young alumni are invited to share in all events and benefits of the alumni population, but in addition, are offered programs designed exclusively for them.
