No 99

The University of Leicester is offering its graduates in the West Midlands an opportunity to network and reunite.

The University's Graduates' Association Regional Reunion takes place in Birmingham on Wednesday, April 2, 2003.

The Graduate Relations Office has invited all graduates, friends and members of its Family Programme to meet for an informal reception at 7pm on April 2, 2003 at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

"During the year we provide a number of opportunities to meet up socially, and keep up to date with news from Leicester", says Nigel Armitage of the Graduate Relations Office.

"The regional reunions take place in a different city every year. This year it will be in Birmingham at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. The Museum houses one of the nation's finest collection of art, history and science, and is internationally renowned for its Pre-Raphaelite collection."

"We know that events like this are memorable occasions, relaxed and enjoyable. We have contacted hundreds of former students of the University of Leicester and we hope that many of them will join us for this event", says Nigel Armitage.

The University has 60,000 graduates on its database spread around the world. Reunions are held internationally and there is a wide programme of other activities, including lectures and the annual Homecoming.

The University's Vice-Chancellor Professor Robert Burgess will welcome graduates and their guests to the Round Room at the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery at 7pm on Wednesday, April 2, 2003.

Tickets are 17.50 per person and include drinks, buffet, free parking and an optional guided tour of the Mayor's Parlour and Council Chamber.
