Nigeria Chapter Welcome Home events
There really is no place like home but the University of Leicester clearly has a firm place in the hearts of many of our Nigerian alumni.
The Nigeria Alumni Chapter led by Chapter President, Dr Hammed Lawal, delivered two hugely successful events for Leicester alumni in Abuja and Lagos, respectively. The events were focussed on welcoming recent Leicester graduates back to Nigeria, giving them the opportunity to network with older alumni who can offer valuable advice and support as they start or continue their exciting career journeys.
The Abuja event held on Wednesday 20 November was very well attended, with 36 alumni making the trip to Blu Cabana restaurant. Meanwhile, 42 alumni were present at the Lagos event held four days later at the Sheraton Hotel. Amongst a number of fun, Leicester-inspired activities, sumptuous meals and drinks, each meet saw guest speakers share their experience with recent graduate on how best to settle in to the community and deal with some of the challenges they might face in the journey ahead of them.
