Teachers and fellow students are important people during this time, because they often make it an unforgettable and enjoyable time. With new knowledge, skills and talents, alumni go out into the world to change it in small and also in large parts. Gratitude and connectedness created by the opportunity to change the world is what motivates alumni to stay in touch with HAWK.
