Best of Bristol Alumni Weekend 2017

bristol alumni weekend
 
We had a great Best of Bristol Alumni Weekend, filled with talks, lunches, friends and tours.
 
There was a special anniversary lunch in the Great Hall for all but with special invitations extended to those who graduated in 2007, 1997, 1987, 1977, 1967, 1957, 1956 and earlier.
 
Highlights included tours of the ever-evolving University precinct, climbing the Wills Memorial Tower to see panoramic views of the city, a visit to the new Law Building, and a special talk from new Chancellor of the University, Sir Paul Nurse FRS, who joined us for his first Alumni Weekend.
 
The weekend was a fantastic opportunity to reconnect with old friends, meet contemporaries, and see the City of Bristol and the University today.
