Letter from the Chapter

Dear fellow alumnus, 

We are ready to kickoff summer of 2019. This year, we started a new Regional Chapter for our alumni living in the Capital region. Please let us know if you want to connect with our team there and/or have suggestions for events and other.

We were honored with a visit of Prof. Andre Oosterlinck, honorary rector of KU Leuven. In a new series, Captain of Academia, he chatted about his life, his career choices and some funny anecdotes. Afterwards, as good Belgians, the group went for a beer at Bryant Park.

We are planning more stuff, but if you have an idea, please let us know.

And oh, by the way, again we could be pride of our Alma Mater, for a 4rd year in a row the Most Innovative University in Europe by Reuters. Congratulations!

Happy summer days from the Chapter Board!


Many thanks to all members for your vital support!

Take care,


Please share  our link (www.leuvenalumni.org) with as many Alumni you know in the States as possible and have them signed up on our mailing list. We want to reach out to our friends and colleagues who attended our Alma Mater, to connect each other and to share the proud feeling of being a graduate of our fine university!

Last but not least, please send us feedback, suggestions, information, etc to improve our website and our network!

Honorary Rector André Oosterlinck

World Economic Forum, New York

June 7, 2019

We started a new series, Captain of Academia, where we have a chat with a successful academic. Who better to start with than Prof. André Oosterlinck, entrepreneur, rector and professor?

Over 20 alumni joined us in a boardroom style fireside chat led by fellow alumnus Peter Vanham, World Economic Forum. A lively story covered André’s life, his way to the top and lots of anecdotes.

The story of a fellow Alumnus

We have started a new tradition: every quarter we will give the floor to one of our alumni and his/her story from childhood to today. We hope they may be inspiring to our incoming alumni.
