2018 Alumni Day and Dinner - Saturday 12 May 2018

We were delighted to welcome alumni and their guests for our 13th Alumni Day & Dinner in May. The afternoon of activities included talks, tours, displays in the library and museum including treasures from the archive, our popular undergraduate mapping project talks and a sing-along to remind alumni of the geology of Arran. Some of the many photos taken on the day are now available on Flickr and YouTube.

Thank you to Greg Palmer for recording the event.
