Thursday, 23 September to Saturday, 25 September 2021
Picture this! It’s ‘lente’ in the Boland, sêr groups are serenading you, you’re enjoying the company of friends whom you haven’t seen in a while, students are showing off their sporting talents on the field, business leaders are sharing their expertise to give your career a boost and the delicious smell of braaivleis is wafting through the air ….
Yes, we’re switching things up for 2021 – our annual Maties Alumni Homecoming and Family Weekend has a new date, and of course you’re invited. From Thursday,23 September to Saturday, 25 September 2021, we’re rolling out the maroon carpet and you have a VIP ticket to come and enjoy a range of tailormade activities at your alma mater.
Gather your friends, bring your family and be part of an exciting three days during which you can reminisce, reconnect and relive your wonderful student days.
We’ve planned a full day of activities for Thursday, 23 September. The festivities will kick off with a lunchtime business and career networking event.
Watch this space – we’ve invited inspiring leaders to share their expertise with you.
For the sport fans, we’ve planned a host of sport activities in which residences will go head to head on the sport field. Come pick your team and show your support.
As an extra-special treat, we’re amplifying togetherness with a Maties Come Wine With Me
wine tasting and food pairing experience at the Alumni Club (Die Stal). Here you will mingle with a host of alumni winemakers and taste some of the best wines on offer while brushing up on your wine knowledge or showing off your refined palate.
We’ll light the braai fires for a Maties braai
under the oak trees at the Alumni Club – think prime steaks and boerewors sizzling on the grills, music in the background and an abundance of Matie gees. Come #BraaiLikeAMatie!
