Convocation and Alumni Reunion 2018

On 22-24 June we welcomed alumni back to campus at our annual Convocation and Alumni Reunion

The weekend’s events included a drinks and canapés reception overlooking the Quayside where graduates could enjoy a perfect view of the Great Exhibition of the North opening event, a Careers brunch, and two Guest Talks delivered by University staff - Professor Karen Ross led a discussion on challenging gender stereotypes and Professor Ian Haynes on ongoing fieldwork in Rome by members of the archaeology team in the Lateran area of Rome. Watch Professor Ross’ talk here. Graduates were also invited to attend the annual Meeting of Convocation and Convocation Celebration Dinner.

Coinciding with the opening weekend of the Great Exhibition of the North, graduates had the opportunity to get involved with the summer-long festival’s programme of activities over the weekend.

The weekend also saw two reunion groups return campus to celebrate graduation milestones – the School of Dental Sciences Class of 1993 and Joint and Single Honours German and Scandinavian Studies Class of 1978.

On behalf of Newcastle University we would like to thank everybody who attended the event and we look forward seeing you at the event again next year.
