The university as it was found by the first intake

University of Cyprus is celebrating its 30 years with an alumni homecoming reunion this October.

The first members of UCy’s alumni community began their journey there in September 1992 at the building of the former pedagogical academy on Kallipoleos street, Nicosia.

To mark the occasion, the office of the university’s development and alumni relations is organising a social event for graduates at 6pm on October 12 in the Anastasios Leventis senate building at the new university campus.

The event aims to welcome them to the campus, giving them the opportunity to reconnect with both old classmates and their university, as well as to celebrate together through various activities.

Among others, the alumni will be given a tour of the campus to see and learn about the dynamic and continuous development of the university’s infrastructure in support of its work. The event will conclude with a reception and a short entertainment programme by the university of Cyprus music talent development programme.

As part of the event, a silent online auction of artwork by alumni and other artists related to the university will be held. The proceeds raised will support the UCy giving back campaign, aiming to support the financially disadvantaged and excellent students of the university of Cyprus.

For more information on the silent auction visit www.ucy.ac.cy/alumni/auction4giving.

House President Annita Demetriou will attend the alumni reunion, as well as rectoral authorities and representatives of the student welfare association and the alumni association. The presentation will be made by journalist Gogo Alexandrinou, an alumna and one of the ambassadors of the recently launched UCy Giving Back Campaign.

The event will be held with physical presence, abiding to all the relevant health protocols against the spread of coronavirus. It will also be broadcast live on the UCy YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/UNIVERSITYOFCYPRUS.

Pre-booking can be done online via the alumni event’s website at www.ucy.ac.cy/alumni/events
