Alumni Of Magdalen College, Oxford
An alumnus (; masculine) or an alumna (; feminine) of a college, university, or other school is a former student who has either attended or graduated in some fashion from the institution. The word is Latin and simply means ''student''. The plural is alumni for men and mixed groups and alumnae for women.
