What is a Chapter?

A CUT Alumni Chapter is a branch in an area where there is a concentration of former students of the institution.  It executes programmes which supports the Central University of Technology, Free State’s mission and vision. CUT Alumni Chapters participants provide valuable feedback to the university on how to serve alumni, what type of information alumni wish to receive, what connections they wish to make and how they wish to participate in the university’s life.
