Alumni are members of Labyrint who have finished their studies and would still like to be connected to the association. For this special group of individuals the alumni committee organises two activities, a symposium and a netwerk event. Of course current students are also invited to these activities as the activities give a nice impression of the many options there are after having studied psychology. The committee also produces a newsletter twice a year especially for the alumni to keep them updated about the association developments.
