The official Wageningen Alumni Chapter Singapore organizes several events throughout the year for WUR alumni in Singapore. This alumni meeting was planned for Sunday 14 August 2016 and was combined with the visit of Rector Magnificus of Wageningen University & Research, prof. dr. ir. Arthur Mol to the Nanyang Technological University.
On Sunday the 14th of August the Rector Magnificus of the Wageningen University, prof. dr. ir. Arthur Mol, arrived in Singapore. During his stay of a couple of days, he visited the Nanyang Technological University. He was given a warm welcome in Singapore.
For the occasion, alumni of Wageningen University & Research joined him for an informal barbecue at the home of two of our alumni, Kees-Jan and Danielle van Wees. The alumni attended this informal drinks & bites gathering with the Rector as you can see below on the digital photos. Prof. dr. ir. Harry Gruppen was also present.
According to Kees-Jan after the meeting:
" It is always fantastic to see how we all have the spirit to stay connected to our Wageningen University. And by connecting like this, we build a community in Singapore that can support or advise, our university in Wageningen back ‘home’."
And he was pleased to hear:
"how well our Wageningen University is doing in the world rankings of universities."
