Organise a Reunion

Ever wondered what your old classmates are up to now or wanted to meet up with them again? Convocation is a great time to have your reunion!

Convocation 2017 takes place Saturday 17 June, so now is the ideal time to start looking up old classmates, contacting friends and planning your own special anniversary reunion.

Some of our guests return to campus with their partners or relatives, some with their degree programme classmates and others with their former halls of residence friends. Whatever the occasion or anniversary, NU Advancement can help you to organise your reunion.

If you are thinking of organising your reunion as part of Convocation, please contact the office at advancement@ncl.ac.uk or by telephoning + 44 (0) 191 208 7250.
