ALUAlive!

Your life matters immensely to the world, and we want you to live such a long life so you can achieve your big goals. As such we have developed the ALU Alive! programme to help you pace yourself, eat healthily, experience emotional well-being, exercise, have an active social life, and so much more. ALU Alive is a framework that empowers you to consciously craft and maintain your own well being. It consists of 5 components: ALU Connect, ALU Move, ALU Give, ALU Maintain and ALU Unplug. All the parts of ALU Alive work together to ensure that you remain active, happy and fulfilled.

ALUConnect: Engage with the world around you. Integrate into the ALU and Mauritian community, culture and customs. Build and maintain lifelong friendships and networks through advisory squads, shared living spaces, social outings and just making time for friends and family. ALUConnect lets you laugh and share with those around you.

ALUMove: Maintain a healthy body and mind through physical activity. Get active and participate in physically engaging games and challenges such as ultimate frisbee, swimming, soccer, volleyball, basketball and more. Build your team spirit through team sports.

ALUGive: Give your time and resources to help others. Utilize your strengths, talents and resources to give back to the community. We partner with SOS Poverty Mauritius and other local organisations to mentor in the community and clean the environment.

ALUMaintain: Ensure harmony and balance in mind, body and spirit. Focus on your overall alignment and well being with guided nutrition and hygiene talks, counselling, fitcamp and spiritual engagement.

ALUUnplug: Taking time out to recharge, reflect, recover and rest. Find your center. Hike and do yoga to take time to reflect, rest and recover during Quiet time and recharge during Time Out sessions

Student-Run Projects

ALU is all about you. Here at ALU you take ownership of your own experience and are given the freedom to design the ALU of your dreams. Through the Entrepreneurial Leadership foundation course where soft skills and leadership mindsets are learned, you are able to create numerous Student Run Ventures that enhance your learning experience. Some ventures and clubs include Snack Time, an on-campus convenience store and ALU’s first student run venture and Banza, ALU’s first club and online literary publication.

Diversity and Community

One of the most exciting things about student life at ALU is the diversity and the sense of community that develops around it. With students from over 29 African countries and staff from across the globe, you will be at the heart of the most diverse college campus in Africa. Join bright, passionate like-minded peers to share, explore and celebrate culture and diversity.
