It’s time to reunite

Legendary rock band the Stone Roses are the latest group to reunite, so why not jump on the bandwagon and revisit your old Uni friends.

Former students are invited to visit Edge Hill University on Saturday 26th November to tour our new £13.5m Student Hub and to catch up with familiar faces.

During the day the campus will be open for all alumni to meet current students, see the latest developments, revisit old haunts and enjoy lunch in our new student hub – an exciting one-stop shop for all student needs, including retail and dining, as well as creating a visually exciting focal point for the University.

Affinity Officer Caroline Mitchell, who looks after the needs of the alumni community, said: “It seems as if everyone is having reunions at the moment, Take That, Steps and the Stone Roses are just a few of the famous bands realising that it’s great to get together and relive those fond memories of the past. There are so many former students who look back on their time at University and want to recapture those moments, which is why we’ve organised this catch up day so that our alumni can reminisce but also see our latest developments and how much the campus has changed in the last few years.

“Our work doesn’t stop there. We offer a service throughout the year to encourage reunions and will support any former student who wants to organise one – so make sure you keep in touch.”

The event on 26th November starts at 11.30am with tea and coffee, followed by welcome talks, lunch and campus tours with current students.

To book your place, or for further information on how the Alumni Team can help to put you back in touch with fellow alumni, email Caroline Mitchell, Affinity Officer on alumni@edgehill.ac.uk. To attend the event we suggest a £5 donation to the Alumni Fund.

If you can’t make this special event, the Alumni Team organise reunions throughout the year and are happy to help former students reunite with friends on campus.

We can help you find your old friends, plan your visit, organise guided campus tours, recommend local restaurants and hotels and during the summer months we can even help arrange for you to stay on campus in our halls of residence.
