Reunions are a fantastic way to reconnect with old friends from your time at Glasgow. 

It’s easier than you might think to organise a reunion and the Alumni Engagement Team can provide all the support you need.

We’re in contact with UofG graduates worldwide and can help to put you in touch with one another.

Check below to see if there is an upcoming reunion for your class. If not, why not organise your own?
