On behalf of the new cohort, Ismail took to the podium and expressed a commitment to strengthen engagement amongst the city’s alumni and work together towards the advancement of LUMS. Newly elected KP Alumni Chapter ambassadors also took the opportunity to thank LUMS for prioritising alumni participation and bringing the community together.
LUMS Vice Chancellor, Dr. Arshad Ahmad delivered a brief address where he thanked the alumni for supporting LUMS in its manifold efforts and for taking the time out to be present at the dinner. He also expressed special gratitude to the Islamabad and KP community for coming full circle with him in this journey, as their annual reunion was the first alumni event he attended in 2018 with this being the last.
An interactive trivia game titled ‘How Well Do You Know LUMS?’ followed where alumni got the chance to interact and enjoy themselves while getting the chance to win exciting LUMS merchandise. The evening ended with the gathering enjoying a lovely dinner over some enlightening conversations.
