Homecoming for Leicester Graduates

June 2002
No 115

More than 30 events are lined up for graduates returning to the University of Leicester on 22 June 2002 for their annual 'Homecoming'.

An exciting programme of tours, film, music and mini-lectures covering a range of interests including crime, world affairs, genetics, engineering, sport and history will be on offer for the hundreds of Leicester graduates who are expected to turn up to meet old friends and catch up on University news.

An extra attraction this year is a visit to the hugely popular National Space Centre in Leicester.   Co-founded by the University of Leicester and City of Leicester, the £52 million Millennium project offers a chance to experience what it is like to travel in space and to explore the mysteries of the universe.

Lunch is provided, and for those who want to prolong the experience, and al fresco dinner in Beaumont Hall, set in the University’s stunning Harold Martin Botanic Garden. Overnight accommodation is available in the halls of residence.

Graduate Relations Officer, Kathryn Whitehurst, said:  “This is always an exciting an happy event. It gives our graduates a chance to track down fellow students they may have lost touch with, to meet up with old friends and to keep up with the University’s latest research initiatives.

“It can be as action-packed or as relaxed as people want to make it, with a “pick and mix” array of events to dip into at will.”
