It is a good idea to provide name badges for alumni events and reunions. They help avoid any awkward moments, are easy to do and can be handed to guests when they arrive. If you are interested, we would be happy to help you with these.
Alumni always like to hear what is happening at the University and learn of new developments. The Alumni Relations team can help identify speakers for you and put you in touch with the appropriate person.
You might also be interested in having someone from Alumni Relations or a current student with the same degree as yours attend your reunion.
Make sure that someone is tasked with taking pictures of your event or reunion. You can send these to guests after the event and we would be delighted to display them on our website and social networking sites. We would also be happy to put you in touch with the Aberdeen University Student Association Photography Society and get them to record your event. You could also ask your fellow alumni to bring old photos and set up a Memory Board at your reunion, or we could put you in touch with our Special Collections Centre and check if they have any images in their archives.
Tours can be given of our old Aberdeen campus or of your old department. If you would be interested in taking a tour please get in touch with our office and we can help arrange this.
Comments and feedback
Setting up a comments book might turn out to be useful for both you as a reunion organiser and the Alumni Relations team as a service provider, so you might want to consider that as well.
