Graduation ceremonies for 2022 Loughborough graduates took place from 19-22 July 2022 on the Loughborough University campus.

As we celebrated the achievements of the class of 2022 last week, over 100 alumni shared photographs from their own graduations, dating back to the 1960s. 

Many alumni shared group photos with coursemates, whilst others chose to share family photos, selfies, or photos from the fountain.

Pictured above, John McGrail shared one of our earliest submissions, taken of his chemistry group in 1965 against a backdrop of Faraday Hall – where they resided.

Meanwhile, others shared photographs from as recently as 2021, a summer of graduations in a marquee – a little different to the norm.

Norbaiti Nazzeri submitted a family photo, below. She graduated with an MSc degree in Artificial Intelligence in 2021.

A photo of two adults and two children, standing behind large white letters that say #LboroGrad. The backdrop is the Hazlerigg Building.

Whether the photos were with family or friends, what really shone through was everyone’s love and pride for Loughborough.

Thank you to everyone who got involved, and congratulations to the class of 2022, our newest alumni.
