School of Social Sciences alumni return to campus for garden party reunion

Alumni from across the University’s School of Social Sciences returned to campus last Saturday for a garden party reunion. 

Alumni from across the UK braved the weather to attend the event, held in the University’s iconic Edward Herbert Building.

The event started with a talk from the Dean of the School, Professor Nick Clifford, followed by updates from Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Enterprise, Professor Tracy Bhamra and Director of Doctoral Programmes, Professor Ruth Kinna.

Lunch was then served before a tour of campus led by Director of Enterprise Development and fellow alumnus, Jon Walker, to show guests both familiar sights and new developments.

This was followed by a reunion lecture led by Professor Paul Wood on advances in river science and an update from Alumni Association President, Paul Drummond, before afternoon tea with music from the Loughborough Students’ Union jazz band, Tuxedo Swing.

The School of Social Sciences is the University’s third biggest in terms of students. It comprises of four subject areas; Communication and Media, Geography and Environment, Politics and International Studies and Social and Policy Studies.

It offers 22 undergraduate and seven postgraduate courses. Its work in the Centre for Research in Social Policy underpins the calculation of the Living Wage, part of the Loughborough Game Changers campaign.

We look forward to welcoming alumni to future events.
