On Saturday, 18th September 2021, the long-awaited Taylor's Alumni Malaysia Chapter Pre-Launch was inaugurated. Due to the current pandemic situation the event was held virtually in a Metaverse Lakeside campus. This event was a huge success. With the COVID-19 situation not allowing our alumni to be on campus, the online format allowed participation of those alumni who would have not been able to participate otherwise. In the end, there were more than 250 alumnus present representing nearly all the graduation years from 1990 to 2021.
The event was graced by Prof. Dr. Pradeep Nair, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer, Taylor's University, along with the faculty leadership team, Prof. Dr. Neethiahnanthan Ari Ragavan, Executive Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences and Leisure Management and the Academic Head of Schools and Director.
The event included a trip down memory lane on how Taylor’s Brand have grown over the years with our alumni and also included thank you notes to our alumni. The Soiree concluded with the virtual breakout session based on their respective field of studies for discussions and alumni activities that made them laugh and reminisce about their study time. This gave students the opportunity to interact with the lecturers, play games, and hangout at the virtual restaurant & café. The event ended with a high note thanking the participants and the members who helped host the event in a virtual format.
The event was very well organized by Taylor's Alumni & Community Engagement Department headed by Ms. Choo Lai Yee and supported by Ms. Stephanie Mill.
