Re-graduate and reconnect!
22 May 2012
With Plymouth University celebrating a special milestone – its 150th anniversary – this year, it is inviting all its graduates, including those from its predecessor organisations, to an exciting event this autumn.
2012 marks 150 years since the University started out as a School of Navigation. Now one of the largest universities in the UK, it has thousands of graduates across the world and recently received the highest national award that can be bestowed on an educational institution – the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education – for its expertise in marine and maritime education.
To celebrate its 150 year history, former students are invited to the University’s 150th Anniversary Grand Re-graduation Ceremony on Saturday 8th September, in the spectacular setting of Plymouth Hoe.
Not only is this a chance for graduates from recent years and decades gone by to get robed, cross the stage and receive a commemorative certificate, it is an opportunity to join with classmates and staff past and present to celebrate their achievements and the University’s heritage.
The event is set to be an especially joyful highlight of the 150th anniversary year, with graduates reconnecting, sharing memories and discovering the latest developments in the city. It takes place at the beginning of Plymouth’s inaugural Marine City Festival, focussing on science, education, business and culture, and including the launch of the University’s prestigious new £19 million marine building.
The ceremony will be followed by refreshments and entertainment, allowing plenty of time for swapping anecdotes!
Speaking about the Grand Re-graduation Ceremony, Vice-Chancellor Professor Wendy Purcell said: “As a Plymouth graduate myself, I am very excited about this special graduation event. Our alumni are a key part of our University community and our 150th anniversary is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate their achievements. We want to reconnect with them so that they can take pride in the success of their University.”
The University is keen to reconnect with all its graduates and is encouraging them to send in their memories, anecdotes and photographs to alumni [a] plymouth.ac (p) uk , so that they can be displayed during the ceremony and the reception. In addition, the University is keen to trace its oldest graduate, so if you think you qualify – or know someone who might – please get in touch.
A special early-bird discount is being offered to all graduates who book their place by 6th June. To find out more, visit www.plymouth.ac.uk/alumni.
