Annual Alumni Reunion 2017

We welcomed over 170 alumni back to campus for our 10th Annual Alumni Reunion. They came from all over the UK and from as far afield as Switzerland, Turkey and Australia. This was a special celebration for alumni who graduated in 1977, 1987, 1992 and 1997. The day was packed with tours of old and new landmarks and plenty of opportunities to catch up and reminisce.

Alumni were transported back to their student days when revisiting Firth Court and the Arts Tower with its famous Paternoster lift. Recent developments such as Jessop West and the Diamond wowed the crowd and illustrated how the campus has expanded over the years.

In the evening, alumni arrived at Firth Court to attend the Annual Alumni Reunion Dinner and Dance, hosted by Professor Gill Valentine, Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor. Guest speaker Dr Andrew Hosty (BSc Materials Science and Engineering 1987, PhD Ceramics 1992), CEO of the Henry Royce Institute, shared his memories of student life at Sheffield, which included the legendary Pyjama Jump and the Limit nightclub.

The live band were excellent and finished their set with an energy-filled rendition of Johnny B Good, which got our alumni fired up for more dancing at the Students’ Union – bringing back many a fond memory into the early hours.
