Big Weekend 2017: Where will you be Big Weekend-ing?

Nigeria Alumni 2

Following the success of Big Weekend 2016 in locations as diverse as Treforest, Cape Town and Abuja (!) we look forward to welcoming alumni to reunion events and network gatherings across the world in the spring/summer of 2017. 


Celebrating each graduate's own unique connection to the University,  Big Weekend is the University's most far-reaching alumni initiative, and focuses on bringing like-minded former students together in locations across the world - be that Cardiff or Calgary! 


Assorted events planned, so save the date: Friday 16 June to Saturday 24 June 2017


Whether intimate dinners or informal social gatherings, Big Weekend gives former students the opportunity to celebrate being connected to the University - whether as a graduate of USW or predecessor institution, including the University of Wales, Newport or University of Glamorgan.


Meet up with friends |  Reminisce about student days  |  Grow your professional network  |  Connect with your University


We couldn’t do it without you. Alumni volunteers help organise events throughout the year and Big Weekend is no different. So whether it's a picnic in Mexico City or braai (BBQ) in Cape Town, club night in Cardiff or wine tasting in Paris - we'd love to hear your suggestions.


Looking for a specific classmate?  Interested in knowing how you might go about gathering friends together?  Drop us a line as we're happy to help.
