We've now had a number of reunions for alumni who first attended the College during the 70s. Over time these have slowly extended themselves to cover all those who did their time between 1965 and 1985. This was a very unique period for the students; as the sixties got into the swing of things, male undergraduates were admitted for the first time changing the environment forever. New halls were built to accommodate this strange new species, the character of the social life changed forever but the college remained relatively small with only around 1000 students. This number grew slowly and the balance between female and male students grew towards equilibrium until 1985 where a merger with Bedford College took place and numbers grew rapidly.
Reunions were held on a three year cycle between 2007 and 2019 - and details of all of these can be found on the various pages of the web site - provided you have registered your alumni details and are signed in.
It is to be hoped that the reunions continue on a similar cycle for at least a few more occasions. The next reunion is still scheduled to take place in 2022 but clearly that will depend on what happens with Covid-19 and how conditions are expected to be at the time. A provisional date will probably be published towards the end of 2020 so that those from overseas can factor the date into any plans they have to travel to the UK in 2022.
The next event is being organised by John Parker who studied Chemistry from 1979 - 82 and his wife Janet (was Wilson) who studied history between 1981 and 1984.
