Student days are calling

Press release   •   May 16, 2013 00:00 BST

A weekend of celebrations is being held next month to mark the 20th anniversary of Northumbria University receiving its university charter.

The University’s first alumni reunion weekend is being held on 14 and 15 June to mark the special event and graduates of Northumbria University, Newcastle Polytechnic or any of its predecessor institutions are being welcomed back on campus to rediscover and reminisce about their student days.

The reunion starts on the Friday evening with drinks in the Students’ Union while the highlight of the weekend will be a celebration dinner at City Campus East on the Saturday.

A range of activities is also on offer throughout the day to allow people to see how the University has developed over the years. Those attending will be able to go on a tour of the library or enjoy a holistic therapy treatment at Sport Central, Northumbria’s £30 million start-of-the-art sport, research and teaching facility. There will also be a visit to Baltic, one of Northumbria’s key partners, as well as a walking tour of the city.
