Seven decades of alumni return for Alumni Day

We were delighted to welcome 150 alumni and their guests, from across seven decades, for our 12th Alumni Day & Dinner in May. The day’s activities included talks, tours of the Godwin Lab and Microanalysis Suite and displays in the Library and Museum. Our popular undergraduate mapping talks were followed by Emeritus Professor Dan McKenzie marking Plate Tectonics at 50. Some of the many photos taken on the day are available on Flickr and YouTube. Thank you to all who were able to join us.


Do save the date for next year’s Alumni Day on Saturday, 12 May 2018. There will be a particular focus on those who graduated in years ending with an 8, but once again, all of you are welcome.
