Beyond Campus: Expectations Meet Reality

The Young Alumni Network (YAN), an interest group of the Alumni Association which was established in July 2016, to increase alumni membership by reaching out to young alumni below the age of 30 through engagement in various programs and events tailored specifically to address their needs as young graduates.

In partnership with Beyond Colours Enterprise, the Young Alumni Network organised an event dubbed ‘Beyond Campus: Expectations Meet Reality’ that was held at the USIU-Africa auditorium on 7th April 2017 from 8.30am to 12.30pm.

Several speakers working across different industries featured on the agenda in a panel discussion. These included: Jerry Shikhule [Enterprise Software Solutions Specialist], Elizabeth Simiyu [Founder of Slim Therapy and Electrical Engineer, BAT] and Kiarie Njoroge [HR Practitioner and Founder of Lafayette Resources].

VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION

"For most parts of one's life, career and business, growth is driven through the acquisition of diverse skills, experiences, networks and exposures that largely cannot be gained from routine everyday engagements. External activities and engagements step in to fill this void. Volunteering has been an answer for many. Legacies and communities have been built on volunteer engagements.
The USIU Alumni Association provides a key platform for those looking for such personal, career and business growth that is complemented by community engagement."
Dorothy Sagwe-Onyoni-Chair, USIU Alumni Association
