How to organise a reunion

How to organise a reunion

Step 1:  Contact us here at The Development and Alumni Office! We are able to gather together lists with names and contact information of your fellow classmates and can help you gather initial ideas.

Step 2:  We can help you make contact with your classmates.  Alternatively you may be able to track down your classmates information by logging into GU World.    

Step 3:  Contact your class mates via email or write a letter. You will be able to assess your fellow classmates reaction and get an idea of numbers for your reunion. 

Step 4:  Choose a Venue. We have various venues on campus which can be tailored to individual reunion group needs from a formal sit down meal in the Gilbert Scott Building to a more informal event with cash bar in the Post-grad Research club.  Incorporate a group tour of the campus or your department. We will be happy to discuss these options with you when you have an idea of numbers and what you would like.

You are not restricted to only these venues.  Previous organisers have chosen to use venues outwith the University in the City or elsewhere.  The world is your oyster.

Step 5:  Choose a Date. Choose a date for your reunion which you feel most of your class mates could attend.  The more the merrier.

Step 6:  Inform your Class Mates! Inform your class mates of the chosen Venue and Date.

Step 7:  Place a notice in Avenue magazine and on our WebPages. You may want to consider a small notice in the next edition of Avenue and on our designated Reunion WebPages.  This could contain dates, venues and your contact information.  Alumni who have slipped the net may see the notice and make contact with you!

Step 8:  Enjoy the Reunion. We will be happy to assist with any of the finer details of your reunion to help the event run smoothly.  Don't forget to let us know how the reunion goes and send us in any photographs and comments which we will gladly print in Avenue magazine.
