Plugged In

Plugged In 292Over 85 alumni and their guests came back to campus on Saturday 8 June for a night of nostalgia in the Parade Bar.

The evening kicked off with a BBQ overlooking the lake and then once the sun went down, alumni were able to dance the night away to songs from when they graduated.

Groups celebrating the anniversary of their graduation included alumni from 1998, 2003, 2005 and 2008. From a couple who met as students toasting their wedding anniversary, to an alumnus on his stag do, it really was a night to celebrate.

Former URB and Students’ Union DJ, Dave Mayo (BSc Computer Science 2003), was behind the decks for the night. He was joined by Neil Bartlett (BEng Electrical & Electronic Engineering 1997) another URB DJ, and they were both in their element with a play list straight from their own student days.

It was the first time we have held this type of event, in response to feedback from alumni, and we look forward to developing it in future.
