Sidney Sussex College Alumni Reunion, Saturday 23 September 2017
For those who matriculated in 1998, 1999, and 2000
On behalf of the College, I would like to invite you to your Alumni Reunion at Sidney on Saturday 23 September 2017.
Alumni Reunions are a wonderful way to meet old friends, reminisce about life at Sidney, and catch up on the events that have shaped your lives since graduation. As is traditional at our reunions, your spouse or partner and other family members are welcome to join us for afternoon tea in the Cloister Court Garden from 3.30-5.30 pm, so that they too can enjoy the atmosphere of Sidney. The Reunion for College members will commence with pre-dinner drinks at 7 pm in the Master’s Lodge.
You will be pleased to hear that a number of familiar faces from your time here are still at the College including Professor Bill Jones (1980), Professor Paul McHugh (1984), and Professor Chris Page (1985).
Of course there have also been changes. In recent years we have made a number of improvements to the College, none of which would have been possible without the support of our alumni and friends. In 2014 we opened Sidney House which provides the College with 28 new student rooms and in 2016 completed the conversion of 26-29 Sidney Street. We will be organising informal tours of the gardens and buildings so you can see some of the changes for yourself.
The closing date for booking is Friday 1 September 2017
Even if you cannot come back on this occasion, I would urge you to visit the online booking page to update your contact details and provide us with a ‘where are they now’ mini-autobiography.
I very much hope that I will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Sidney in September.
Professor Richard Penty FREng
