The RSVP’s are flying in thick and fast to the events planned for CPUT’s alumni in Gauteng, Namibia and Cape Town in the next few weeks. All graduates (alumni) of CPUT and the former Cape and Peninsula Technikons based in these areas are invited to attend.

Vice Chancellor Dr Prins Nevhutalu is jetting in specially to attend the Gauteng and Windhoek events. He’ll be using the opportunity to share both his vision for the university and CPUT successes and garner alumni input on taking the CPUT from good to great. Both the Gauteng (October 31) and Namibian (November 14) events cost R50 , with cocktail snacks, canapes and a cash bar included.

While the VC is unable to attend the Cape Town event scheduled for December 5th, it promises to be a fantastically festive affair where all our Cape-based graduates can reconnect and network. Alumni  Officer Val Deelman says alumni can expect good food, good company, light entertainment and lovely prizes to be raffled to boost the CPUT Bursary Fund.

It’ll be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Cape Town Upper Eastside hotel in Woodstock, with tickets costing R220 per person. To RSVP to this event, please email Helena Pietersen or call +27 21 460 3389/3786.
