My friends and I recently held a reunion, planned because it was forty years since we met in University Hall. We were all freshers in 1972, but quickly made a tight knit group of friends in University Hall. The common thought at our reunion was that we had made such a close bond during that time that we could just pick up where we left off, no matter how long it had been since we had met. We chose to meet in Oxford because it was the most accessible base for all of us. The weekend of the 24th/25th November wasn't the best for travelling or weather, but it was a great weekend anyway. Even in our late fifties, we could still pretend that we were meeting in Room 9 of University Hall!

In September 2012, a reunion was held in Bangor for alumni involved in sports teams during the 60s and 70s. Over 100 alumni attended a lecture by Dr David Roberts, Bangor University's Registrar and an evening event held in Bar Uno on the Ffriddoedd Site. A good time was had by all! See photos from the event.
Recently some '57-'59 St. Mary's College students held a reunion, which has now become an annual event. This year they went to York for two nights on the 11/12th September. Sixteen '57-'59 attended, staying in a hotel in the centre of York. There was a lot of talking and reminiscing, but also a great deal of laughter. The group move their venue annually so that travelling distances are more evenly distributed. Anyone wishing to join them should contact the Development and Alumni Relations Office and mail will be forwarded.
Nine members of the Climbing Club from the period 1957 - 1961 got together during the first week of October staying at the University's Management Centre. Many of them had not seen each other since leaving College but managed to keep in touch 'by grape vine and smoke signals!' and they all recognised each other.
The group walked to Idwal on the morning of the 5th October which really did bring back the memories - Gale Force 6/7 wind and rain! They then had a visit to the College Archives where they saw the Climbing Club record books. It was a most enjoyable time. If anyone wants to get in touch with the group, please contact the Development and Alumni Relations Office.
In August 2010, we welcomed back over 100 of our 1970s alumni from UCNW, Normal College and St. Mary’s College.
