UNIN Background The most important distinguishing characteristic of the tertiary education sector is the predominance of the University of the North (UNIN) as the premier tertiary level institution in the South Africa that has predominantly produced competent black graduates from the marginalized areas without distinction, to at least a student population of over 15 thousand per year. UNIN still remains irrefutably the only truly regional higher educational institution in the African context, scope and reach that served the marginalized graduates. However, its existence and potential developmental role needs to be carefully embraced and fully taken into account.
Rationale Through this realization it became eminent to conceptualize on a reunion concept The market was tested where ex contemporaries were sensitized and contacted on the reunion concept. It was then realized that as Ex Turf loop students most wish for a successful reunion event that will draw all the ex students to celebrate UNIN ―Turf loop’s‖ existence and its success.

Why the Reunion Campaign? Reunions are milestones—occasions for graduates to commemorate their place in University of Limpopo history Reflect on what The University of Limpopo has meant to them, and renew their ties to the institution. Reunion celebrations are also a time when graduates focus their fundraising efforts to increase giving in support of undergraduate education. Reunion campaigns will engage the participation of nearly half the members of each reunion year — and many more in some cases. Each year these campaigns will raise hundreds of rands for The University of Limpopo Fund, giving financial support, student life, and innovative academic programs.

Recommendations Overall I think the document is sound and strong but I feel the plan is lacking a bit on answering the campaign objectives Try to have a picture at least every 2nd slide. This will help to make the document interesting Look for another template to use, this one is very boring – Google Slide Share, they have free nice templates
