Alumni Blog, your space to share...

A note from Val, Alumni Relations officer

With the current situation, we are unable to meet in person and share news and anecdotes, so we are opening this section for contributions from alumni.

Please send us any news (a new book? your company is hiring and can benefit other alumni or students?) or anecdotes (photos, short stories, questions, and so on).

I intend to act as a link and use this section as a noticeboard for alumni.
Please us it!
