GIMPA Hosts Maiden Farewell Dinner for Graduands


By Joyce Boahemaa Fosu

GIMPA, has for the first time, held a farewell dinner in honour of its fresh alumni; students who completed their programmes of study in the 2022/2023 academic year and who graduated in the just held 23rd congregation. The dinner which took place at the Executive hostel, Greenhill campus in the evening of the last session of the congregation saw graduands from the various schools coming in their numbers to celebrate their achievements. The beautiful event was attended by the Rector Prof. Samuel Kwaku Bonsu, Deputy Rector, Prof. Martin Morgan Tuuli, Secretary of the Institute, Dr. Mrs. Victoria Kunbour, the Alumni President, Mr. Norman Yemety and some faculty and staff of the Institute. Amidst the excitement of having all graduands under one roof with top management and soft tunes playing at the background, both graduands and staff could not help but to shake it off on the dance floor. The atmosphere was indeed charged with excitement. Many delicious continental dishes were served alongside different cocktails and juices.

The highlights of the night were the surprise guest artiste performance, socialization, networking and photography sessions. The sundry cultural performances by the cultural troupe invited by the Institute to entertain guests was also remarkable. It was indeed a night to remember. ‘We want to keep GIMPA on the minds of our fresh alumni, give them the opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with GIMPA senior management, faculty and staff. By so doing, our graduands will experience first-hand the improved services GIMPA wants to provide,’ said Ms. Dinah Asante, the Consultant in charge of fundraising for the GIMPA Endowment.

‘It is also important that we recognize the value of the alumni in moving GIMPA forward. So what we are trying to achieve through this event is to create a platform where the graduands will have great experiences during their time at GIMPA. We hope that those activities will create a sense of belonging at our institution and ultimately encourage them to consider including their alumni identities as part of their present and future,’ Ms. Asante added.

‘The dinner was such a nice experience,’ says Ms. Ishallyn Tamakloe, an alumna from the School of Technology, who attended with some of her course mates. ‘It easy for us to forget as students that there is life after graduation, and this helps me to remember that and plan for it,’ she added.
