GWU Alumni celebrate George Washington’s Birthday

by Din Merican

GWU AluminiFormer graduates of The George Washington University (GWU) gathered today at Le Meridien, Kuala Lumpur for a lunch. This lunch was sponsored by their alma mater to celebrate the birthday of President George Washington, after whom their university  was named.

Thank you to the local host, Farizuddin Aman, Class of 1980, and the University administration from making this gathering possible. It was a success. Dr. Puteri Julie, Class of 1994, has kindly agreed to host another function at her home later this year.

It was a wonderful opportunity for these graduates to renew their friendship and reconnect with the University which gave them a well-rounded high quality education. They shared fond memories of their time at GWU, and were kept up to date with the rapid and impressive progress of the GWU campus  in Washington DC; they noted with pride that their alma mater had gained a solid  reputation for educational excellence.

The alumni who gathered for this function came from The GW Law School, The George Washington School of Business, The School of Engineering and The Elliot School of International Affairs. Most of them who came were from the Class of 1980’s, 1990’s and 2000’s with one exception and that is super senior Din Merican, who was from the Class of 1970, The George  Washington School of Business.

Here are some of the photographs taken at the function:

Happy Birthday, Mr. President and thank again The George Washington University for transforming our lives and for the tender loving care while we were under your charge. You made us global citizens. It was indeed an unforgettable experience for all us to be in Washington DC with a great institution.

  1. One more lesson from George : he refused to become the King of the new
    United States and he became President instead.
    “First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen”
