The LUMS Melbourne Alumni Chapter organised a meet-up on Sunday, February 16, 2020 at Himalaya Restaurant in North Melbourne, Australia. The get-together comprised of alumni from the Class of 1990 to the Class of 2016. It was a fun-filled gathering where the LUMS graduates reminisced over their time at the University over authentic Pakistani cuisine.
The reunion also provide alumni who have recently moved to Melbourne the opportunity to meet like-minded people, and get advice on how to settle into a new city from other alumni who have been living in the city for a long time. The evening was spent having candid conversations about the challenges of living away from Pakistan and the small steps that can help transition into a successful life in Melbourne.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the chance to connect and bond with other LUMS graduates in the area. A Melbourne Alumni Chapter volunteer, Ramsha Amir shared her sentiment on meeting new alumni and said, “Through the reunion I was able to find fellow Luminites who live close by and hope to continue meeting up and interacting with them.” She expressed that the reunion reminded the alumni of memories shared at LUMS and inculcated a renewed appreciation for their LUMS education.
The Melbourne alumni community ended the reunion on a promising note with plans to organise many more such events.
