University of Lausanne Alumni

A New Chapter for University of Lausanne Alumni

When Livie Kundert arrived in San Francisco, the Junior Project Manager at swissnex San Francisco and representative for the University of Lausanne (UNIL) in the Bay Area had a mission: find and contact all the UNIL alumni.

Mission accomplished! After meeting some of them at the June 1 Swiss Alumni Gathering event, she had the pleasure on Monday, August 13, of officially announcing the creation of a Bay Area chapter. Its goal is to strengthen the links between alumni from UNIL by organizing social events and providing friendly support to newcomers. To celebrate, a happy group of nine UNIL alumni had dinner and shared insights about their experiences in California.

As Kundert is going back to Switzerland, she had to find a leader for the newly minted chapter. Catherine Couchepin-Baud, a social psychology graduate, stepped up and is happy to be taking over this role.

If you are a UNIL alumnus living in the Bay Area, whether you’ve been here for 10 months or 10 years, get in touch and join your fellow UNIL graduates!
