TuksAlumni Office: Support and Services

Department of University Relations

The Alumni Office would like to support all interest groups on campus to reach their alumni.

1. Dispatch of electronic communication to alumni: Many interest groups would like to send communication to alumni and therefore it is important to manage the process to prevent alumni from being overwhelmed with e-mails. As soon as too many e-mails are sent, especially if they are not directed at specific target groups, the receiver builds up resistance and often asks to be removed from the mailing list. In order to ensure optimal use of e-mail dispatch, adherence to certain guidelines is important (Click here to view the guidelines). Contact Jacqui Pietersen at 012 420 3702 or

2. Access to telephones (students): Telephones in the Alumni Office will, as far as possible, be made available for students to contact their alumni on behalf of their residence/interest group/faculty to update contact information. This should be arranged one week in advance with the Alumni Office.

3. Media exposure: The Alumni Office would like to report on all alumni functions on the web page and where possible, in the electronic newsletter. Interest groups are requested to forward information and photographs on alumni activities or achievements to the Alumni Office.

4. Alumni reunions and events: The Alumni Office will gladly give advice to any interest group organising reunions or events (such as residence reunions or prestige lectures). The Alumni Office would like to be presented at these events.

TuksAlumni reserves the right to change the guidelines above if necessary. Kindly contact the Alumni Office at x 3086 or at
