Our Alumni Association, BG Generations, ensures that even when you end your studies with us, you’ll always be part of the BGU family.
We’ll keep in touch and let you know about news on the BGU Campus, inviting you back to a whole host of events, activities and reunions to ensure you have a chance to meet up with old friends and remain a part of BGU life.
You may even decide to become an Alumni Ambassador, giving you the opportunity to support many of our events from Open Days to reunions, helping to raise the aspirations of our current students through mentoring or giving talks, perhaps even providing valuable work experience to help develop those all-important employability skills.
And don’t forget the many discounts and benefits you’ll receive from both internal BGU services and external companies and businesses. So what are you waiting for? Become a member today and start taking advantage of all the great opportunities and memories BGU can provide well after you have graduated.
