Shwmae! to graduates from all eras at #steddfod16 reception

Eisteddfod 2016 - alumni reception

The Alumni Team were delighted to welcome welsh and english-speaking graduates to an informal reception as part of a week long University programme of activities at the 2016 National Eisteddfod.

Former students and their families - plus a number of former members of staff - shared fond memories, and we were particularly delighted to welcome alumni from USW as well as a number of predecessor institutions, including Gwent College of Higher Education, The Polytechnic of Wales, University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport.

The event this year was held in the picturesque welsh town of Abergavenny and with sunshine between the occasional rain shower, wine and cakes were enjoyed during the alumni reception. Visitors to the stand had the opportunity to update contact details, leave a 'pearl of wisdom' for our incoming Freshers, hear more about further study options and generally reconnect - which was for some, something they had not done for over 20 years or more!
