The Alumni Association of Xavier Institute of Social Service (AAXISS), Mumbai Chapter, which is known as the most active and biggest alumni association of XISS, Ranchi, is organising the 16th Mumbai Chapter reunion on 15 October, 2022 in Mumbai.
The meet expects to host over 200 alumni from more than 66 batches of XISS, including HR leaders from various companies across industries. A large pool of successful entrepreneurs and XISS’ most respected faculty fraternity along with current students will also be present.
This reunion will offer an opportunity to students of previous batches to come and interact with their old friends some of whom may not have met for a long time. It will also allow batchmates to relive their good old college days and times.
Additionally, the current batch will be able to learn from their seniors and use the event as a ground to network.
“The Alumni Reunion is a great way to relive the past by remembering good old days and by getting nostalgic with class mates, seniors , juniors and our Alma Mater,” shares Arjun Singh, secretary, AXISS Mumbai Chapter & VP – corporate HR, CEAT.
