University of Zurich Alumni and Friends New York Kickoff Meeting


Twelve University of Zurich (UZH) alumni living and working in New York came together on Wednesday, December 11, for the first official ‘UZH Alumni and Friends New York’ meeting. The event was co-organized by the UZH International Alumni Program and the New York Outpost of swissnex Boston.

The UZH alumni represented a broad range of academic backgrounds, from business and economics to mathematics, biology and the humanities. While some of the Alumni have lived in New York for several decades others arrived in the Big Apple just a few months ago.

An introduction to the ‘UZH Alumni and Friends New York’ project was followed by an open discussion and exchange of ideas over some snacks and drinks. I would like to thank all the participants for their valuable input and their help in shaping a successful UZH alumni chapter in New York.
It was a great pleasure meeting such an interesting and diverse group of UZH alumni in New York.
