Alumni in New Zealand reunite in Auckland

On 20 December 2018, alumni in New Zealand gathered for informal drinks in a popular Auckland bar, Brew on Quay.

Two recent graduates; Rob Forster (pictured right) and Jack Needham, who are respectively travelling in New Zealand saw a fantastic opportunity to connect with fellow Loughborough alumni. 

A Facebook group was created for graduates in New Zealand to reunite with classmates, share memories and organise social events.  

This online community has flourished, and alumni are enjoying getting to know each other.

Prior to the event, alumnus Jim Antill (pictured centre), invited Rob to his home for dinner. Rob had ‘the most wonderful evening’ listening to Jim’s stories, showing just how strong the Lboro Family bond can be across the generations.  

If you currently live in New Zealand and would like to be involved in these activities, please contact the Alumni team for more information or join the Facebook  page.
