Who is an alumi?
Alumni play an increasingly important role in the German university system, but what does this term mean?
Usually this term refers to university graduates. It stems from the Latin word “alumnus” which means pupil. Alumni is thus the plural form and alumna refers to a female graduate, alumnae being the female plural.
The University of Wuerzburg understands the alumni network in a much broader sense: It welcomes all current and former students, teachers and employees.
