stars Alumni Lounge

The stars Alumni Lounge is an interactive peer-to-peer discussion forum exclusively for stars alumni, friends of stars and donors. To make the stars Alumni Lounge as interactive and personal as possible, participation is limited to 30 seats – first come first served. All participants receive the list of participants and are encouraged to turn on their video during the meeting – but this is of course entirely up to each participants’ individual preferences.
