Alumni day: stay connected!

Re-live your student days! We invite all our alumni at the alumni day November 18th.

This year Tilburg University will be celebrating its 90th anniversary which we would like to celebrate with our alumni. In light of this celebration we are organizing a day filled with activities revolving around the theme connection. This day will take place on Saturday the 18th of November. We would like to invite you to come back to campus and meet recent grads, alumni, or former professors and to be informed about what this university has to offer you as alumnus or alumna. We would like for you to join us for the Alumni Cantus at Vidar!

The afternoon program is free, and for the cantus we will charge a fee of € 20 per person (including drinks and transportation). Bring the confirmation of your payment with you as entry ticket for the cantus, this would ensure a smooth entry.

Make sure that you do not miss out on the Alumni day and sign up through this application form!
