The following interest group is affiliated:


Younger alumni are an important group within the broader alumni body. The Alumni Relations Office presents from time to time specific activities for alumni between 20 to 35 years of age. Younger alumni can also join our existing alumni activities which tend to draw younger persons. Examples are the AmaTuks soccer supporters, participation in marathons, golf, music evenings and wine-tasting.  Other activities such as our business breakfasts and guest lectures in faculties and departments have a more academic or career orientated content which can also be useful.

The Alumni Relations Office builds relationships with students from their first year while they are still on campus. This ensures that they know exactly what it takes to be an alumnus or alumna when they obtain their qualification and become young alumni. The Young Alumni and Student Committee (YASCOM) assists Alumni Relations to promote the role of active, participating alumni amongst students and young alumni /postgraduate students. The committee also plays a role in promoting a culture of giving amongst pre-alumni.

We welcome suggestions from students and young alumni alike. Contact Jacqui Pietersen, tel. 012 420 3702 or email  [email protected] with your bright ideas on alumni activities that may appeal to you and other young alumni.
