Just before commencement 2012 began, the Northwestern University Alumni Association chartered a new club, the Northwestern Alumni Club of Qatar. This will be the first Northwestern alumni club in the Middle East and a way for new graduates of Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q) and expats living in the region to connect and stay involved with their alma mater.

“It will be great to collaborate every once in a while and meet up and see all the great things we are up to,” said NU-Q graduate Florent D'Souza.

The charter was presented to Everette Dennis, Dean of NU-Q, by Charles Katzenmeyer, president of the Northwestern Alumni Association, about an hour before the first graduates of NU-Q joined their Evanston and Chicago classmates on Ryan Field for Commencement.
