What is an 'alumni'?

Question:

What is an 'alumni'?

Answer:

Alumni is Latin, and is plural for graduates; alumnus is singular for a male graduate and alumna is singular for a female graduate. Once you graduate from Macquarie University you are a part of our alumni community, which consists of over 172,000 graduates in over 140 countries.


We encourage you to stay connected with Macquarie once you have finished your studies; we aim to continue your university experience with regular events world-wide, professional development opportunities, plus the latest news happening on campus.


At Macquarie, we also consider former staff members to be a part of the University's alumni community.
