Gender neutral word for alumna/alumnus

Postby sidneyeng » Tue Jul 15, 2014 9:06 pm

1.I read in a grammar book that the gender neutral word for alumna/alumnus is "alum", but I couldn't find the word anywhere else.The word alum also means-a specific chemical compound.So is the usage of "alum" common enough for me to use it?

2.Can someone suggest me a gender neutral word for air hostess?
