Al Akhawayn Alumni Reconnect with Alma Mater for a Fun-filled Ifrane Fall Weekend



Ifrane, October 7, 2011 – The 2012 Fall Alumni Reunion weekend, organized by the university’s Alumni Association witnessed over 50 Al Akhawayn alumni from all around Morocco coming back to campus in Ifrane from October 1-2, 2011 for the annual Alumni Reunion organized by Al Akhawayn Alumni Association.

Formal Al Akhawayn Alumni Reunions are held twice a year, once in the fall and once in the springtime, and are special occasions for Al Akhawayn University graduates to reconnect with their alma mater by coming back to the campus in Ifrane, see their former professors and classmates, plus current students, and share stories of how their lives have unfolded since their commencements.

This year, the 5th reunion of the Class of 2006 and the 10th reunion of the Class of 2011 are being honored, and the October 1-2 program included meetings with President Driss Ouaouicha and University executives about the status of Al Akhawayn’s strategic plan, the state of the Alumni Association itself, along with entertainment, sports, and outdoor activities and excursions that capitalized on the glorious fall weather in Ifrane’s 1,600-meter-high mountain region.

A fun-filled reunion dinner at a favorite local restaurant on Saturday night provided a special highlight for the Al Akhawayn Alumni who returned to recall old days, brainstorm and develop future plans, and plan the Spring 2012 reunion, where distinguished alumni from the classes of 2002 and 2007 will be honored.

The Al Akhawayn Alumni Association was established in 2003, and there are currently some 2,750 graduates of the University; the goal of the Association is to maintain and strengthen the bonds among and between Al Akhawayn alumni and the University itself. For more information, please visit
